Conor McGregor's fans couldn't help but notice his incredible physique as he provided a training update ahead of a return to UFC action this year.
In footage shared on his social media pages, Notorious looks like he hasn't missed a day in the gym in months as he prepares for his comeback.
McGregor has been out of action since last July, when he suffered a horror leg break against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
It was his second defeat to the American in 2021, and it left fans wondering if that was the last they would see of the Irishman inside the Octagon.
But he has been on the comeback trail and, after sharing just over a minute's worth of footage of him deep in training, McGregor looks all set for a big return in 2022.
He appears to clearly have gained muscle in his upper body and couldn't resist showing off that strength with some abdominal crunches as he swings his legs into the air and high above his head.
He posted the caption: "Core work on the @mcgregorfast. The Truth," to go alongside the video.
Fans were, of course, excited by this latest indication that McGregor is working towards a return to MMA action, and one went as far as to claim it would be "the biggest return in UFC history".

The 33-year-old's next opponent has not yet been announced, but whoever he faces he will have a point to prove after defeats in his last two outings.
It's possible he might even be thrust straight in for a title fight, with rumours swirling of a meeting with lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.
Oliveira is unbeaten in his last 10 fights and defended his title against Poirier – McGregor's most recent conqueror – in December.
But MMA legend Chael Sonnen still believes McGregor can cause problems for the champion, and that a successful defence of the title is far from a foregone conclusion.

"If there’s anybody that Conor is likely to beat to become the world champion, it is the sitting champion, right now," he said on his YouTube channel.
"Charles Oliveira-Conor McGregor is a fascinating matchup. It is very problematic for Oliveira. Conor McGregor is as good of a striker as this sport has ever seen.
"Oliveira is a very dynamic striker who showed some real wrestling prowess in a couple of contests but in other contests didn't."
