Watch Conor McGregor nail MMA student with 'beautiful' uppercut during The Ultimate Fighter sparring session | The Sun

CONOR MCGREGOR caught an MMA student with a brilliant uppercut during a sparring session for The Ultimate Fighter.

The Notorious is coaching fighters as he takes part in season 31 of the American TV series.

But he will also be keen to stay sharp with a clash against fellow TV coach and UFC fighter Michael Chandler on the cards.

The 34-year-old has clearly not lost his knack for causing damage as fans could see from newly-released sparring footage.

It shows the MMA legend going toe-to-toe with one of his students who was trying to keep pace with McGregor.

The Irishman at one point catches the student's foot at the beginning of the video in the first warning sign of danger.

McGregor's opponent, wearing black shorts, then attempts to keep his distance as the pair prepare to exchange light jabs.

But the student lets his guard down for just a second allowing McGregor to land a sweet uppercut.

The shot lightly rocks the man's head back but he recovers quickly.

But the uppercut does appear to accidentally loosen his head gear which he then resolves to get rid of for the rest of the video.

Fans enjoyed seeing some of McGregor's quick thinking on display again after his near two year absence from the octogon.

One said: "That uppercut was beautiful."

Another said: "That lead uppercut" as they added an 'out of breath' emoji.

While another had praise for the brave student and wrote: "No headgear. Savage [is] a different animal."

Meanwhile, McGregor's caption reads: "I love fighting so dearly.

"I had a great experience coaching and training with a solid crew of young athletes on @espn’s @ultimatefighter!

"Alongside my long-time, all-time, all-star team! Airing May 20th everywhere. @ufc."
