VIDEO | Conor McGregor training with BJJ World champion

June 20, 2016 10:48 am by Russell Ess

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is busy preparing for his rematch with his rival Nate Diaz.

To prepare for the rematch with Diaz, McGregor has brought in BJJ world champion Dillon Danis. Danis is a black belt under Marcelo Garcia and was brought in to help to get “The Notorious” prepared for Diaz’s Cesar Gracie black belt jiu-jitsu techniques.

Danis told FloGrappling, “We’ve been in contact for a while and the time was just right. He’s one of my idols and you don’t pass up opportunities like this. He has one of the greatest minds and skillsets ever in the sport.”

Will Danis be able to prepare Conor McGregor for what Nate Diaz will bring to the Octagon when they meet in August at UFC 202? Share your prediction with us on the rematch!
