Conor McGregor's coach has insisted that his fighter is at the 'best he has ever seen him' in preparation for his sensational UFC comeback.
UFC superstar McGregor, 31, announced in October 2019 that he would return to the octagon in 2020.
And the Irishman, who hasn't fought since his devastating defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, will face Donald Cerrone in a welterweight fight at UFC 246 on 18th January.
John Kavanagh has now taken to Twitter to reveal that the 'Notorious' has done his "last heavy spar today before going to Vegas."
But McGregor's coach added that UFC fans are "in for a real treat" as the 31-year-old makes his comeback later this month.
The 42-year-old Irish martial arts coach tweeted: "Jan 1st, last heavy spar today before going to Vegas.
Jan 1st, last heavy spar today before going to Vegas. Can honestly say this is the best i've seen him and i wasn't sure that was possible to do 6 months ago. You guys are in for a real treat, i'm just glad to have a good seat! #UFC246

"Can honestly say this is the best i've seen him and i wasn't sure that was possible to do 6 months ago. You guys are in for a real treat, i'm just glad to have a good seat!"
McGregor, who is eyeing up three fights in 2020, has been teasing fans with his bulked-up physique in various social media posts.
The Irish superstar has his eyes set on facing BMF champ Jorge Masvidal on route to a blockbuster rematch with Khabib before the end of the year.
However, UFC president Dana White has warned McGregor about the idea of fighting 'Gamebred' after the Cerrone clash.
"Conor has this idea, too, that if things don't go his way and he [doesn't] get the fight [with Khabib], he'll have had a 170 fight in his pocket again and [is] considering a [Jorge] Masvidal fight," he told MMA Fighting.
"I think everybody knows what I think about it. I think it's a bad idea.
"Conor gets p****d off when I say it's a bad idea, and he's like, 'You think I can't beat Masvidal?'
"I'm not saying you can't beat Masvidal. Anybody can beat anybody on any given day, but why?
"Why go after that fight when you could possibly just wait?"
