Conor McGregor has taken to social media to show he’s ready for a return to the Octagon, by pulling off a move he claims to have invented and then dropping his poor sparring partner with it.
The former UFC Lightweight Champion has been out of action for more than a year rehabbing his broken leg, but was expected to make his comeback early next year. However, a recent movie casting could now set that date back further.
That hasn’t stopped the 34-year-old showing that he’s more than ready to return to action, with a video post on his Instagram feed displaying a move in his ‘Conor McGregor Created’ repertoire.

In the video McGregor displays a move ‘he created’ which starts with a fake spinning back kick

In the clip, the ‘Notorious’ fighter is shown in a sparring session, where he performs a move he says no one has ever seen before. Calling the fake Spinning back kick into a back hand rifle ‘the tiocfaidh ar la’ – which is Irish for ‘our day will come’.
The back hand shot is certainly effective, as the impact sends his sparring partner to the ground and he is left slumped in one of the corners of the cage.
Alongside the video, McGregor explains the move and its name to his ‘students’ and boasts about the hours he has put into a craft that he has mastered.

‘What’s up my students! Here is another brand spankin’ “Conor McGregor Created” shot for you all. I know you’ve never seen this one before. Like the rest of them. A Fake spinning back kick into a back hand rifle.
I call this shot “the tiocfaidh ar la” Our day will come.
Shout out and tag and support all the companies in that cage and that gym, they are mine. Praise be to the hours I’ve put into my craft. If you’ve seen the amount of hours I’ve put into my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so masterful at all.’
McGregor hasn’t fought in the UFC since his back-to-back defeats to Dustin Poirier in July last year, the first of which was the first knockout loss of his career.
Earlier this month it was revealed that the Irishman will be taking on his first movie role, as he stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the remake of the 80s classic Road House.
