Conor McGregor has been relatively silent so far about his UFC 229 bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov. The lack of promotion is something the UFC is reportedly frustrated over, but with the Irishman having a tough test ahead of him, it’s pretty understandable for him to focus more on training than marketing.

McGregor took to social media recently, showing brief highlights of what he’s been doing in the gym, which also helps promote the upcoming title bout as well.

On the clip above from his Instagram, McGregor is seen doing drills, sparring, and conditioning. Although the sparring clips were brief, it shows the former champion landing clean strikes on multiple training partners, and dropping at least one of them.

UFC 229 happens on October 6 in Las Vegas. While both fighters have kept somewhat low profiles as of late, the UFC has released three new trailers to promote the highly anticipated title bout.
