LAS VEGAS – What does Conor McGregor look like as a boxer?

That’s the question everyone wanted answered as a massive swarm of media crowded into the UFC Performance Institute on Friday in Las Vegas. The UFC lightweight champion obliged with a lengthy workout, including 12 simulated rounds of work on the bags, in which the bold Irishman maintained a high output of punches from start to finish.

After an equally lengthy break to shower and eat, McGregor returned to the workout floor, where he held court in front of dozens of cameras for close to 40 minutes.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC), of course, takes on all-time boxing great Floyd Mayweather (49-0 boxing) on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in what could very well prove the biggest combat sporting event of all time.

Check out highlights of McGregor’s work on the mats and on the mic in the video above, and check out an exclusive photo gallery of the day below.
