A young Conor McGregor predicts his UFC success in this 2008 video

'The Notorious' is barely recognisable without his trademark beard, but he still displays plenty of his trademark confidence as the video flicks between then and now.

Scary. Someone get him on the phone - we want next week's Lotto numbers.

We can't wait for the fight with Jose Aldo - even just to see if 'Mystic Mac' was right. July 11 can't come soon enough.
