Many reacted to the clip by comparing him to boxing legend Mike Tyson, who has recently wowed fans on social media with his quick strikes.

Has he gotten worse? That does not look impressive, slow and sluggish. Father age gets us all at some point I guess

McGregor's training in the video is centered on power and accuracy which is why the former 'Champ-champ' is likely moving at a slower pace than usual.
Many have speculated who McGregor will take on in his next UFC fight, with UFC president Dana White recently advising him to face the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje.
Gaethje became interim UFC lightweight champion and next in line for a shot at the lightweight champion after an impressive victory over Tony Ferguson in the UFC 249 main event last month.
Speaking on Eddie Hearn & Tony Bellew's Talk The Talk podcast, White said: 'I think the best thing for him, I'm not saying this is what's going to happen, but in my opinion, he lets this Gaethje-Khabib fight play out and he fights the winner.
"I think that's the smartest move for him. But, you know him, maybe he wants to fight before that and if he does, we can figure something out. I think that is the move for him right now."
His last fight came in January when he demolished Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone at UFC 246.
Who do you think Conor McGregor will face in his next fight and what weight will it be at?
