CONOR MCGREGOR has taken his first steps since breaking his leg in the fight against Dustin Poirier in July.
The Irishman, 33, was beaten by rival Poirier in their third bout at UFC 264 in Las Vegas.
He became the subject of much mockery and derision from fans, with Floyd Mayweather even getting in on the action.
But McGregor has enjoyed a swift recovery and took his first steps on a medical treadmill which took some weight off the lower half of his body.
He shared a clip of him walking on Instagram alongside a caption that read: "Today is a momentous day!!!
"I walked for the first time since surgery. Bearing 50% of my big body weight!
"I also done it in the brand new “Irish Green” Virgil Louis Abloh’s!
"A long way to go yet but a massive personal boost for me today! Thank you all for the continued support everyone. God bless, happy Saturday."

McGregor fractured his left tibia after his ankle gave way underneath him as he stepped backwards during the Poirier fight.
He also claimed he had had “multiple stress fractures” in his shin bone before the fight started, but he now looks to be close to regaining fitness after wearing a leg brace since the incident.
McGregor has even been back training in the gym, wearing a protective boot to ensure he does not do any further harm to his left leg.
Meanwhile, the UFC star has also been relaxing poolside in the Beverly Hills hotel, showing off his £450,000 'roulette' watch to his Instagram followers.
It may be a little early to judge when McGregor could return to the Octagon but a fourth fight with Poirier could be top of his agenda when he does.
Other possibilities include another bout with Nate Diaz or even Jake Paul, providing the Youtuber defeats former UFC star Tyron Woodley on Sunday.
