The Notorious took to Instagram today and posted an image of Jose Aldo lying motionless on the floor of the octagon while referee John McCarthy tried to separate the pair.

Most people would immediately be drawn to the state of the Brazilian but the 27-year-old from Crumlin gave us a fascinating insight into his body stance in the image and his awareness of everything around him.

He wrote: "Most will see 1 unconscious man here.

"I see a clean get up about to happen in a fight against multiple attackers.

"Hips away, strong frame with the left hand, right hand post on the mat with bottom leg free for a clean get up.

"If Big John was a second attacker, he is in trouble. I am a split second away from being back to my feet here.

"With his outstretched, forward reaching pressure, and his torso separated from his hips, Big John is ending up face down after the get up.

"Two or three quick cracks to his temple and I make my escape clean.

"Two attackers immobilized.

"What's up Las Vegas."

McGregor is home for Christmas and, according to his coach John Kavanagh, his next bout will come in the lightweight division against Rafael dos Anjos in the spring.
