DUBLIN man Conor McGregor is back in the ring after months on the sidelines following a knee injury.

Rising UFC star McGregor was testing out the facilities of John Kavanagh’s new Straight Blast Gym located on the Naas road, Dublin.

By the looks of things he had his hands full, as future star Nathan Kelly had the pro in a rear-neck choke hold just before the four minute mark.

With McGregor’s return to the ring most likely to come at the end of the summer, all eyes will be on one of Ireland’s most exciting sports stars when he steps back into the ring.
