Conor McGregor got trolled hard after making a delusional claim

McGregor is still recovering from a broken leg sustained in his third bout with Dustin Poirier last summer. To the dismay of fans, Conor McGregor recently claimed to be the world’s most deadly ‘vertical puncher.’

The former two-division UFC champion is still recovering even though he’s been given the go ahead to start sparring.


McGregor is unlikely to return before August. He may go up to welterweight but at this point it’s very hard to tell what the future holds for him.

The 33-year-old often posts on his social media accounts. However, his most recent video has garnered mixed reviews. The video shows him punching a punching bag on the floor.


McGregor started in the video: “Me Tarzan, You Jane! I am the greatest and most dangerous vertical puncher on this planet. “

Later on he added: “I do real damage.


Fans reacted quickly, with one commenting: “The delusion has reached comedic levels.” Another added, “Very slow, little power. Work the speeds, to be unpredictable, not so much muscle.” “Only problem is you’re the one always on the ground,” said another cynically.


Since his 2016 finish of Eddie Alvarez, in which the Dubliner was declared lightweight champion, McGregor has only won one. Floyd Mayweather defeated him in the ring before being strangled by fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.


McGregor’s only win in the previous six years was a 40-second knockout of Donald Cerrone. However, the veteran confessed that he was ‘absent minded’ during the bout. If McGregor decides to stay at lightweight, he’ll pay close attention to UFC 274 this weekend.


The main event features 155lb champion Charles Oliveira defending his title against Justin Gaethje. And also a bout between Michael Chandler and Tony Ferguson. 


McGregor has said he wants to get a chance to snag the welterweight championship title against Kamaru Usman. However, Usman is due to defend his title against Leon Edwards this summer and it’s highly unlikely an undersized McGregor is a serious competitor in the division.
