    I spent much of 2017 shooting Conor McGregor in preparation for his historic boxing match against the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather. This photo was taken as Conor weighed in at the T-Mobile arena the day before the fight took place. The arena was packed with 20,000 people and the atmosphere was unlike anything I've ever felt before. Pure electricity. I love that you can see the thousands of hours of work he's put in through his physique.

    Without reading your caption, this is awesome. I can assume the story. But after reading your caption, learning this is Conor McGregor and the story behind the frame, I love it even more. I love the perspective, revealing what he is seeing — I can't imagine flexing in front of that many people. I can only imagine what the energy in the room must have felt like, I bet it was electric, I bet it was pure excitement. Great seeing. Well done Christian. Very well done.
