Conor McGregor has marked the second anniversary of his his maiden UFC triumph with a tweet you could only associate the Notorious.
The Dubliner beat Marcus Brimage in Stockholm on April 6, 2013 to launch himself into the limelight and he has revelled in it.
McGregor has only fought four fights in the meantime but the manner of his victories and his pulling power have saw him earn a title shot on July 11 against featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
Over 67,000 people applied for just 3,000 tickets to see McGregor and Aldo face-off at a promotional event for their big fight in the Convention Centre.
He has justifiable cause for confidence.... here's what he tweeted last night.
