Conor McGregor Looks In 'Unstoppable Form' After Posting New Training Video During Coronavirus Crisis

Conor McGregor Looks In 'Unstoppable Form' After Posting New Training Video During Coronavirus Crisis

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is continuing to push himself to the limit as he dropped an intense clip of him training at home amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The 31-year-old Irishman made his sensational MMA return in January by swiftly taking out Donald Cerrone in a first-round TKO win at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.

And McGregor is reportedly keen for two more fights as he targets a mega-UFC rematch with fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The 'Notorious' has now posted a video on his Instagram account of him training at home in isolation as he ferociously hits the pads with lefts and rights.

UFC has suspended different events amid the coronavirus crisis, but is still trying to push ahead with the hotly-anticipated clash between Khabib and Tony Ferguson next month.

But McGregor is showing little sign of slowing his training regime down, despite the coronavirus putting a halt to several different sports across the world.

The former two-division UFC champ took to Twitter earlier this week to promise that he would come out of the crisis like martial arts icon and hero Bruce Lee.

McGregor has also sent out a desperate plea to those in his native homeland by asking them to "stay vigilant with our quarantine efforts."

The Irish superstar wrote in a message to his Instagram followers: "Quick reminder to stay vigilant with our quarantine efforts, team Ireland!

"We have seen a drop over the last 3 days in numbers of infected. From 191 cases on Thursday, March 19th (Our heaviest day to date) to a slight decrease of 126 the following day, Friday March 20th. To now today, Saturday March 21th, a total number of 102 new cases.

"These are encouraging drops each day but we are still above 100 a day. With today being Saturday and the peak of our weekend, plus the fact we have received lower numbers each day, we will all feel tempted to get out and back to living our normal lives again.

"But now is the time we must remain most vigilant! Remain most vigilant and put this fully to bed.

"Otherwise we run the risk of going around in circles with these numbers until they hit a spike we then can't contain.

"Stay tight Ireland! We will do this! Together in unity! God speed to everyone around the world fighting this virus.

"We fight it side by side! Team work makes the dream work, God bless!"
