Conor McGregor’s video of him riding a bike ahead of his title fight against Jose Aldo has become UFC’s most viewed video on Instagram. The video took over Joaquin Buckley’s viral back-kick Knock Out this year.
McGregor is certainly the biggest name on the UFC roster, despite being relatively inactive over the last three years. He’s risen to prominence again even more so after Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement.

Conor McGregor is set to return to the Octagon to take on Dustin Poirier in January, a year on from his 40-second KO of Donald Cerrone. The Irishman will return to the lightweight division for the first time since his loss to champion Nurmagomedov.
Poirier, who lost to McGregor back in 2014, is now a durable, special fighter on a great run since that defeat. Poirier beat Dan Hooker in a five-round war earlier in 2020.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Conor McGregor if he does manage to get past Poirier.
The biggest fight to make undoubtedly remains as the rematch against Khabib.
Khabib said he is retired, but has admitted that if Dana White offers him an amount he can’t refuse, he will consider to return in fight again.
