Triple C is not buying it
In the video, McGregor could be seen working on his power shots by hitting the pads. While it seems convincing, former UFC champ-champ Henry Cejudo was not impressed.
For “Triple C,” McGregor’s stunt was “not believable” and “The Notorious” still needs to work on his ability to “hide everything” before coming up with an unexpected punch.
“Too much, too much wind telegraphs what you’re doing which makes it not believable,” Cejudo wrote on Twitter. “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 – humble Henry.”

“The Notorious” has options
As always, McGregor is still on the radar of a host of UFC stars even though he is coming off back-to-back losses to Dustin Poirier. From the look of it, it appears that many are convinced that the former UFC two-division champion is still the biggest draw in the sport.
As it stands, top lightweights Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler are still eyeing him while his old foe Nate Diaz previously hinted at a trilogy fight.
The UFC has yet to name a possible favorite to become McGregor’s opponent. However, one thing certain is that “Mystic Mac” will surely be relying on his boxing once again.
As for the weight class he will fight at, McGregor previously said that he has no plans of deflating and would like to compete for the UFC welterweight title.
