Conor McGregor admits his recovery has been challenging, but he’s moving in the right direction. During the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards , McGregor strolled ( and even tussled ) across the red carpet on foot, with the assistance of a cane. This being a little over two months since he broke his leg at UFC 264 in his trilogy fight vs. Dustin Poirier. Monday, McGregor gave an update on his condition on the streets of New York. While he feels great, McGregor is trusting the medical experts and following their directions before he gets back into things full-throttle.
