The comeback is near.
Little has been seen of Conor McGregor since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 but, judging by a video he posted to social media ahead of UFC 246, the Irishman’s “notorious” power certainly remains intact.
McGregor faces Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone on January 18th in Las Vegas, the first fixture in what he calls a three-fight season in 2020 in which he aims to renew his rivalry with Russian UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The footage shows McGregor working alongside his longtime striking coach Owen Roddy, but also showcases a new addition to the Irishman’s camp: two-time Irish Olympic boxer Phil Sutcliffe Sr., one of McGregor’s first-ever trainers at the famous Crumlin Amateur Boxing Club where the future UFC champion initially honed his skills.
Also noticeable is McGregor’s impressive frame.
