CONOR MCGREGOR TURNED 26 yesterday, but he won’t have been celebrating too hard with UFC Fight Night Dublin to come on Saturday.

The homegrown headline fighter takes on Diego Brandao in the O2, confident of continuing his progress in the featherweight ranks. The short documentary above takes us behind the scenes as McGregor prepares himself to beat the Brazilian.

“Now I’m back here and it’s my show,” he says. “I’m gonna blow the roof off this place, I’m gonna shut the show out. The whole country’s gonna shut down. Next year, we’ll do a football stadium for my title defence.”
