Prior to Conor McGregor’s first fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 196 back in March, Nate Diaz poked fun at McGregor’s movement training with Ido Portal, calling it ‘touch butt’.

The term has managed to stick, and is now frequently used among MMA fans when mentioning McGregor’s training with Portal.

Ahead of UFC 202, where McGregor will look to avenge his loss to Diaz, Portal has returned to SBG Ireland to aid McGregor in his preparations for the fight.

Portal isn’t the first expert McGregor has brought into the gym for his training camp. In addition to Portal, McGregor has been training with BJJ World Champion Dillon Danis, and Olympic boxers Michael Conlan and Paddy Barnes.
