UFC legend Conor McGregor confirms return in wheelchair boxing match against impressionist Al Foran after horror injury

CONOR MCGREGOR will return to action in a charity wheelchair boxing match against impressionist Al Foran.

The UFC legend has been recovering from the broken leg he suffered during his loss to Dustin Poirier back in July at UFC 264.


He had been due to face Foran in September but was forced to postpone on doctor’s orders.

But the 33-year-old has now confirmed the fundraiser for the Irish Wheelchair Association is on and even indulged in some trash-talking with his pal Foran.

The Notorious wrote on Twitter: “Today we start preparation for my wheelchair boxing match in aid of @IrishWheelchair. 

“Real excited to get in and have some fun / bust the eyeball of celebrity impersonator, Al Foran. Al you can be Pacino! Joe Pesci! Even big TyFury! But you still just fat Al from Tallaght to me.”

Foran is a Dublin comedian who often impersonates the Irish fighter on social media.

And the funnyman replied: “From Portmarnock but whatever, need a trainer ASAP.”

The date and venue for the event are yet to be confirmed but it is expected the pair will meet in December.

McGregor has recently showed off a new hulking physique as he builds up his fitness following surgery on his horror leg injury.

A return to UFC action is still some way off, with reports suggesting he could be back in the octagon next summer.

Mooted opponents include Nate Diaz to complete their trilogy of fights, fan favourite Justin Gaethje, or even Poirier once again.
