Ahead of Conor McGregor’s welterweight UFC 202 rematch against Nate Diaz, the featherweight champ is wasting no time in bringing in elite level boxers to help him prepare for the bout.
Michael Conlan is a 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist, and and Paddy Barnes is a two-time Olympic bronze medalist. Both men vouched for McGregor’s skills via Twitter after the training session.
