UFC superstar Conor Mcgregor and his team SBG Ireland seem to be taking his training camp very seriously for the mega fight against UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Unlike his previous fight camps, Conor has maintained radio silence with regards to promotion of the fight, instead preferring to post his intense training on social media featuring a lot of sparring with him reportedly hurting his sparring partners.
Another of his post on social media showed him uppercutting a training partner in a sparring session. The unique thing about this photo which was noticed by a lot of netizens was that his training partner was wearing duct tape on his head.
Conor revealed the reason behind this in the comments of his instagram post.

Gorillas in war zone mode indeed. It is unclear if Conor is serious or trolling due to the fact that it is seen in picture that the tape is not covering the training partner’s ear but it shows in a way how serious is Conor about defeating Khabib Nurmagomedov for the Lightweight Championship.
There much anticipation for the first time both Conor Mcgregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will officially face off with the press conference scheduled for this Thursday in New York but for now we have to make do with some social media warfare.
