WE KNOW LOVE/Hate character Fran is hard as nails but, even still, taking on Irish UFC fighter Conor McGregor may not be the smartest idea.

Dubliner McGregor, who is currently making the final preparations ahead of his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage in Stockholm on Saturday night, was pictured squaring up to actor Peter Coonan by coach John Kavanagh.

Coonan has recently been filming the new season of Love/Hate and also stars in upcoming film King Of The Travellers, which will be released in cinemas later this month.
