One of the most intriguing stories leading up to Saturday’s massive pay-per-view event has surrounded former two-weight boxing champ Paul Malignaggi, who was brought in by the McGregor camp as a sparring partner.
Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has made a fortune by destroying opponents with his brutal left hand.
“Mystic Mac” became the first UFC fighter in history to simultaneously hold two belts in different weight classes at November’s UFC 205 event in New York, this after he finished Eddie Alvarez via a sensational second-round knockout.
Alvarez is not the only opponent to get put away by McGregor’s nasty left hand. Fellow UFC standouts Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, Dustin Poirier, Marcus Brimage and Dennis Siver have all fallen to the iron left hand of “The Notorious”.
McGregor will face his stiffest challenge to date next weekend when he makes his professional boxing debut opposite undefeated legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
If Conor is to defy the odds and emerge victorious against Mayweather on August 26 he will surely need to do so by utilizing his lightning-quick left hand.
In the following video courtesy of “Boxing Legends TV“, we see the 25 best punches ever landed by Conor McGregor during his time in combat sports.

Do you think Conor McGregor can pull off the massive upset next weekend and thus prevent Floyd Mayweather from retiring with a perfect 50-0 professional boxing record?
