Watch: Conor McGregor behind the scenes / Sparring Day

MMA star Conor McGregor’s ‘The Mac Life’ series has given fans unmatched access to the Irish puncher ahead of his defining night against Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor battles Mayweather on August 26 in a bid to halt the American’s impressive 49-0 run in the squared circle.

Here, ‘The Mac Life’ goes behind the scenes in the first three episodes focusing on McGregor’s preparations to battle Mayweather in Las Vegas next week.

In the weeks leading up to his first-ever boxing match, reigning UFC lightweight champion McGregor keeps his training – and his loyalty – intense.

The 27-year-old leans on those who have been in his corner since the beginning of his career, and has incorporated them in to his training camp.

Head coaches Owen Roddy and John Kavanagh advise McGregor on boxing technique and training, and he flies in longtime movement coach Ido Portal to develop proper movements in the boxing ring.
