Conor McGregor Nails 'Bottle Cap Challenge' While Holding Bottle Of Whiskey

Conor McGregor has become the latest celebrity to take on 'The Bottle Cap Challenge' and as expected, the former UFC lightweight champion has well and truly nailed it.

The challenge requires a huge amount of skill and precision.

You must deliver an inch perfect spinning back kick to unscrew the bottle cap without the actual bottle falling over.

McGregor makes it look easy but trust me, it isn't.

The guy even holds his very own Proper Whisky as he nails a pin point kick, before walking away in typical fashion.

After completing the challenge, you must then nominate another person to perform the incredibly difficult mission.

McGregor accepted well known British actor Jason Statham's call out and the Irish fighter went one better, name dropping a 'friend' of his.

'Notorious' decided to nominate Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, who he faced back in 2017 in a bout dubbed 'The Biggest Fight In Combat Sports History'

"Excellent job @jasonstatham, I tip my cap to you" said McGregor on his official Instagram account.

"I'll take it from here. I nominate Floyd Mayweather."

McGregor's isn't the only MMA fighter to try his luck at 'The Bottle Cap Challenge' in recent days.

UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway completed the task in style, nailing a spinning kick that soon went viral.

"Be curious my friends! " he said on Twitter. "Passing this on to our guy .... hey John if you can't complete this challenge and I decided you have to come to Hawaii after your tour and kick it with us until you complete it!"

Do you think you could complete the challenge, or know anybody who would fancy their chances?
