Check out UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor training for his upcoming fight with lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. McGregor has the chance to become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two division’s championship titles on March 5 at UFC 197.

“The Notorious” doesn’t look to be getting any slower with his move up to 155lbs and will definitely not be lacking in power from the looks of his recent physique. With his famous quote that “timing beats speed, precision beats power,” the speed and power factors don’t seem to matter for “The Notorious.” He has shown to have the timing and precision equation figured out to formulate brutal finishes time and time again.

McGregor will definitely be tested as dos Anjos is no easy task. The lightweight champion’s last fight was a rapid finish of top contender Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in December. Although McGregor’s KO over Jose Aldo was even quicker, both champions are coming off impressive first round finishes.
