The Icelandic strongman is 6ft9" tall and weighs 180kg compared to the Crumlin native's fighting weight of 65kg.

It's clearly a no-holds-barred contest between the pair and McGregor wisely opted to stay at distance, hitting the big man with jabs to the mid-rift.

McGregor is deep in preparation for his bout with Jose Aldo for a title unification bout in Las Vegas on December 12.

Conor is clearly not concerned about picking up injuries before he picks on someone his own size in two months time.
