Conor McGregor punching power shown off in new training footage

Conor McGregor has released a video which shows him throwing some impressive power punches in training.

He is certainly looking in explosive shape and the footage will be exciting to see for all the Irishman’s fans, who are eagerly waiting to see who he will fight next.

UFC fans are speculating who Notorious could fight next and his excellent condition could mean an announcement is due sooner rather than later. 

The 33-year-old is currently in Cannes and he even had time in between training sessions to attend the Cannes film festival.

The video shows McGregor working with his trainer, throwing a barrage of left and right punches, which you wouldn’t want to be on the end of.

The Irishman is hoping to return to winning ways after back-to-back defeats against Dustin Poirier last year.

His most recent loss led to some calls for the former champion to retire, but thankfully it looks like there are no plans for that.

Big names that are being mentioned as potential McGregor opponents include Jake Paul and Kamaru Usman, but nothing has been announced as of yet.

But there is one man who believes he should be next up to face the Irish star in the Octagon.

Lightweight fighter Michael Chandler defeated Tony Ferguson last month and he feels like he is now at the front of the queue.

The 36-year-old said: “I feel like I’m the frontrunner right now, I could be the frontrunner.

“I’m exciting, I’ve got the hype, I’ve got the knockout, I’ve got the fights with Gaethje, I’ve got the callout.

“I think I’m on the cusp of being the guy who’s in the conversation with Conor and very few people get in the conversation with Conor.

“I still think I beat Conor, I’m fighting next for the title anyway. Nothing is guaranteed, this sport moves quickly. Who knows?”
