The #McGregorChallenge has caught fire on social media. But what does the man himself think about it?
As the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor draws closer, fans have been having a bit of fun with the #McGregorChallenge, which stems from a recent Conor media workout session when he was captured doing a arm-waving warmup that can only be described as ‘unorthodox’:

WBC and WBO light welterweight champ Terence Crawford then came up with the McGregor Challenge – an attempt to imitate the Irishman’s unique training methods:
Well, it seems McGregor has caught wind of people having a bit of fun at his expense, and while he said he doesn’t take it personally, he didn’t seem too impressed.
“I’ve seen some videos,” McGregor said. “It is what it is. It’s light-hearted. I don’t take it personal. If anything I see stiffness in every single one of them.”
There you go, McGregor imitators. It seems you’re not doing it right.
