Conor McGregor has showed off his 'bow and arrow' punch in a new training video ahead of his highly-anticipated UFC return.
The 'Notorious' hasn't fought since suffering a nasty leg break in his last UFC appearance against Dustin Poirier last summer.
But he's on the mend and thought to be looking to return to action later this year.
And ahead of his next Octagon assignment, the 33-year-old showed off his handy work - in particular his punching power.
He took to social media to share an explosive training video as he introduced 'The McGregor bow and arrows'.
He uploaded a clip of himself landing a series of strikes on a punch pad, accompanied with the caption: "'The McGregor bow and arrows' I’m calling these. In association with Bruce Lee. Enjoy."
In another tweet, he wrote: "I will sink these bow and arrows into the target. In live fighting. For the world to witness. Again. But these arrows are different than before. Corkscrewed. Knuckles."

For the world to witness. Again.
But these arrows are different than before. Corkscrewed. Knuckles.
McGregor hasn't won a UFC fight since January 2020 when he stopped Donald Cerrone.
He's currently on a two-fight losing skid, having lost back-to-back fights to Poirier.
Despite his form, the former UFC champ-champ is eyeing big fights - targeting the likes of Charles Oliveira and Kamaru Usman.
Speaking about McGregor, UFC president Dana White said he's hoping to have his main star back in the 'early fall'.
He said: "I literally have nothing for him right now, he’s not ready. The whole landscape could change over the summer.
"We’ll see when he’s ready to fight. And when the doctor gives him 100 percent clearance we’ll start looking at possible opponents.
"We’re looking at early fall if everything goes right. If his leg heals right and he gets the clearance to really start training, then possibly early fall."
