Conor McGregor and his team have released footage of ‘The Notorious’ and Newry middleweight Conor Wallace sparring.

The clip is part of a behind the scenes feature for the ‘Bad Blood’ documentary that is being released to promote McGregor’s rematch with Nate Diaz on August 20th in Las Vegas.

Wallace, the Elite National runner-up last year to Olympian Michael O’Reilly has been flown out by McGregor for sparring ahead of UFC 202 where the Crumlin star will look to avenge his second round submission loss to Diaz back in March.

The Ulster fighter has been tasked with replicating the Californian, who is also a long southpaw, after impressing during a session at the Straight Blast Gym in Dublin.
