The Dublin mixed martial artist as in Los Angeles recently and made time to meet up with 2015 World Championships gold medalist Mick Conlan at the Box ‘n Burn gym ran by British Olympian Tony Jeffries, who was defeated by Ken Egan in Beijing.

McGregor and Conlan have developed a friendship over the past year, with the Belfast super bantamweight organising sparring for ‘The Notorious’ with Conor Wallace ahead of the Nate Diaz rematch, and the Dublin UFC star agreeing to carry the flag at Conlan’s debut at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick’s Day.
