Conor McGregor posts new training footage showing off 'bow and arrow' punch

Conor McGregor's new punch in fresh training footage

Conor McGregor has been training for his hotly anticipated return to the UFC, and the footage looks promising as he perfects a new technique.

“The McGregor bow and arrow” show off his incredible punching power and bulked-up physique, exciting fans for a long-awaited return.

McGregor’s last fight was against Dustin Poirier, but was ended early due to the Irishman breaking his fibia – an injury that’s still healing.

The new footage is the latest in a line of training videos uploaded by McGregor in recent weeks and has been viewed nearly a million times.

Despite the power behind the punches, former UFC star Henry Cejudo called the video “not-believable” in a scathing tweet.

“Wind telegraphs what you’re doing which makes it not believable. Half punch the front hand to disguise the back hand. It’s not about the combination but how you hide everything with a big surprise. Sincerely the goat.”

McGregor came under criticism after his last two fights, moving away from his martial arts style of fighting that was so effective in his early career and leaning into boxing more heavily.

The new technique seems to be working for McGregor, though, and he vowed to use it in the future.

“I will sink these bow and arrows into the target,” he wrote. “In live fighting. For the world to witness. Again. But these arrows are different than before. Corkscrewed. Knuckles.”
