There are few people that have more national pride than Conor McGregor in the UFC. So in preparation for his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202, is it any surprise that he wants some help from his fellow Irishmen.
McGregor brought in Conor Wallace, a six-time Irish National Boxing Champion, to his camp to work with him on his stand up game. Not only was he there to coach, but both Conors threw on some gear and sparred each other.
While filming The Mac Life and Bad Blood, the cameras caught hold of the two squaring off with one another. No slouch to boxing himself, McGregor was able to hold his own with the boxing champion.
The video posted by McGregor also showed the production of UFC's Bad Blood, which will air on Fox Sports 1 in the week leading up to UFC 202. The program will show the rivalry between Diaz and McGregor that has been brewing since the featherweight champion lost at UFC 196.
The two have already gotten into fights at press conferences, McGregor crashed Diaz's appearance on Conan by submitting his own video to talk down to him, and the two just generally don't like each other.
You can watch the whole Mac Life video below and tune into FS1 prior to UFC 202 to see Bad Blood.
