Whatever you think of Conor McGregor, you can’t accuse the Irishman of resting on his laurels.
Having taken just 13 seconds to dispatch Jose Aldo and claim the UFC featherweight title in December, ‘Mystic Mac’ quickly set his sights on Rafeal dos Anjos’s Lightweight belt.

It’s enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.
McGregor has stuck with the pre-fight formula that has bred so much success for him already, and he’s certainly not behaving as though he considers himself the underdog for the fight.

Bring on March 5!
