UFC commentator Joe Rogan estimates Conor McGregor weighs more than 200 pounds after his dramatic body transformation.
MMA superstar McGregor has hit the gym hard and put on several pounds of muscle during his 17-month hiatus from the octagon due to injury.
The Irishman’s newfound physique has stunned several fight fans including Rogan.
During a recent episode of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast, he said, “Look how jacked he is!”
He added: “Look at his size. Bro, look at this guy’s height. He weighs over 200 pounds.”
Rogan partially credits McGregor’s growth over the past year and a half to being limited to working out his upper body after breaking his leg horribly.
He said: “However, he is recovering from a horrible injury.
“That’s why it took so long and that’s why he is [working his upper body] Yes.
“[And] get fat. He broke his tibia and fibula – both broke.
“It’s a terrible injury to recover from.”

After recently being shown a workout pic by The Notorious, Rogan said: “Look at those legs on that motherf****r – Jesus.
“So the left leg that was broken is now jacked up.”
Rogan has found himself on the receiving end of a string of tongue-lashes from McGregor lately – which began after the veteran commentator suggested he would fail a USADA drug test.
McGregor, 34, has not set foot in the octagon since his ill-fated trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last July.
The Irishman is targeting a cage return early next year, although he can only do so if he receives an exemption from the USADA minimum six-month testing pool requirement.
In October, the UFC’s first-ever simultaneous two-weight champion said, “Hopefully I’ll be back soon.
“I am aiming for early 2023. Sometime in this first quarter.
“That will give me a good couple of months [to prepare].
“As soon as I pack this up [filming Road House] Get up in a few days, get camp going [for] a good few months. And let’s go.”
