Conor McGregor has released a brutal training video that will strike fear in the heart of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor looks to be in incredible shape as he prepares for his comeback fight at UFC 229 on October 8.
The UFC star isn’t holding back against his sparring partners, dropping a number of his opponents with brutal strikes.
Fans have waited nearly two years to see the former dual-division champion back in the Octagon.
The Irishman has been unusually quiet in the lead-up to the fight, remaining relatively silent compared to in the past.
But this new video serves as the first warning shot from McGregor to Khabib.
The highlight reel shows McGregor honing his skills in sparring, wrestling, striking and strength-and-conditioning workouts.
Most of the video was shot at SBG Ireland, McGregor’s home gym in Dublin.
Lawsuit throws spanner in the works
McGregor is being sued over the now infamous New York rampage that saw him attack a rival fighter’s team bus.
TMZ Sports reports that the legal action stems from the attack on a UFC team bus at the Barclays Center in April.
Fellow UFC fighter Michael Chiesa, who was one of many on the bus, is said to be the party who filed the lawsuit.
Chiesa was scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis at UFC 223 just days after the incident, but had to withdraw after suffering cuts to his body and face while on the bus when McGregor started attacking it.
According to the report, Chiesa said in the lawsuit that he also suffered “severe emotional distress, mental trauma and/or bodily harm.”
McGregor had an altercation with several fighters before he started launching a guardrail and chairs at a bus carrying UFC fighters and employees that was trying to leave the arena.
He surrendered to police the next day.
McGregor reached a deal with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office in July that allowed him to avoid any jail time.
He pleaded guilty to one count of disorderly conduct and was sentenced to community service and anger management classes.
