Conor McGregor and his teammates have been training with rising jiu-jitsu player, Dillon Danis, in advance of the featherweight champ’s rematch with Nate Diaz.

Recently Danis posted a photo of himself and McGregor at the Straight Blast Gym in Dublin, Ireland. The team’s head coach, John Kavanagh, has also done the same. Danis is a black belt under vaunted grappler Marcelo Garcia, and has won multiple grappling titles, despite being just 22 year’s old.

Diaz – McGregor II has been booked for UFC 202 on August 20th, after the latter submitted the Irish star at UFC 196 earlier this year.
