UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor hosted his media workout earlier this evening in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The brash Irish star showed up to the UFC Performance Institute in style rocking a Versace Robe that would have even wrestling legend Rick Flair glowing with envy.

Prior to showcasing his boxing skills, “Mystic Mac” answered a number of different questions from the numerous members of the media who were in attendance for today’s workout.

When asked why he had passed on working out with current WBO Super Featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, who had offered his services for sparring, McGregor had a quick response.

“First off, he’s 120 pounds. Second, he’s a southpaw.” Stated the UFC’s current lightweight champion.

Lomachenko had offered his services to McGregor earlier this week on social media.

“. @TheNotoriousMMA need another sparring partner to test your skills against?” – Vasyl Lomachenko

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will square off at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26.

The “Mayweather vs. McGregor” event is expected to produce record breaking numbers. (Get the full fight card here)
