Conor McGregor has made the shocking admission that he 'shivers' in embarrassment when watching the technique he used before fighting Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor was defeated by 'Money' back in 2017 in a bout dubbed The Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History'.
The UFC star's boxing ability was questioned in the build up and his performance at the media workout weeks before the fight left many unconvinced.
'Notorious' returned to his first ever boxing trainer before his UFC return against Donald Cerrone in January and admitted he doesn't enjoy how he used to fight.
"I actually look at the Mayweather [fight], the shots on the bag and the way I was punching and I actually can't even watch that", the 31-year-old explained per The Sun.
"I shiver when I see the way I was throwing my punches back then. I just wasn't sitting right on them, just floating through the air.
"Now I'm getting into positions and sitting in. Got to go through everything to learn, to truly learn. Experience is the best teacher of all."
McGregor is confident that he would have a better shot against Mayweather in a second fight, while the American thinks he would 'whip McGregor's ass again'.
Mayweather has also sent fans into overdrive following comments he made on Instagram earlier this week.
In an Instagram Live video, Mayweather can be heard shouting 'McGregor don't want this' as he trains.
McGregor has also shared clips of his boxing training while in lockdown, but he had another mans names on his lips - Canelo Alvarez.
He stunningly called out the Mexican during a home workout in Dublin, Ireland which had many fans speculating on a boxing return for the former 'Champ-champ'.
Team Canelo have since responded to the call out and trainer Eddy Reynoso has said a fight could happen in the future.
"The reports are pure speculation because right now there is no news about anything, there are no fights," he said.
"Boxing is a business. Saúl right now is the best fighter pound for pound and if McGregor jumps into boxing, then we are going to hit him."
However, Reynoso ruled out a meeting inside the famed Octagon. He added: "What we are not going to do is get into a cage [to fight McGregor]."
