We always knew McGregor for his speed inside the Octagon and this video proves that he has lost none of it. McGregor has been working extremely hard after he came up short against Poirier the last time. McGregor even shared a picture of him captioned, ‘Jacked and loaded, what’s next?’

McGregor’s hard work seems to have paid off; for we can see a real improvement in his physique. During his previous fight against Poirier, McGregor didn’t really look in great physical shape. Although we can see that the ‘Notorious’ one is significantly fitter and better prepared.

According to McGregor’s coaches, all the muscle that the fighter has put on has increased his power a lot. John Kavanagh had talked about how all this extra power will make McGregor very dangerous against ‘The Diamond’.
