UFC star Conor McGregor was mocked by fans after he uploaded a since-deleted video of him parading in front of his TV, appearing to stare down fellow fighter Max Holloway.

A video that was posted on McGregor’s social media accounts showed him pacing up and down a living room as he clenched his fists, with featherweight fighter Holloway appearing on the TV.

Holloway – who is the former UFC featherweight champion – was appearing in the octagon for his bout against Yair Rodriguez, which he went on to win via decision, as UFC President Dana White described it as one of the championship's 'best-ever' fights.

And, when the American appeared pre-fight with his name being shouted around the Las Vegas arena ahead of his UFC Fight Night event, Irishman McGregor took it upon himself to show fans exactly what he thought about the former world champion.

However the video was soon deleted by the ‘Notorious One', after a backlash from fans, who ridiculed the ‘cringe video’.

One fan took to Twitter to slam the video, commenting: “This is cringe, he's legit pacing in front of a TV. It's like when zoo animals pace back and forth from stress/boredom.

“Doesn't exactly make me think someone is tough or intimidating.”

Another added: “Dude continues to amaze me with his cheesiness. Imagine his thought process. ‘Ok, I’ll set up my phone over here. Then I’ll pace in front of the TV. And then I’ll try to intimidate the TV.’”

Despite the criticism, the video did imply that the Irishman is keen to take on Holloway in the octagon once more, after the pair first met in 2013 when McGregor came out victorious.

Following Holloway’s victory on Saturday, it seems that he is also towing the same line as the ‘Notorious One’ by openly admitting he is more than ready to take on McGregor once again.

In an interview with Michael Bisping post-fight he said: “We’ll see what happens. There’s Hunter [Campbell], there’s Shawn [Shelby] right there. That’s their damn jobs.

“I have a win over the 155-pound champion, we have Alex and stuff, I’m on the shortlist for Conor McGregor – tell him to hit my line. We ready whenever.”
