UFC star Conor McGregor releases video showing what goes on in his brutal workouts

CONOR McGregor has displayed his most intense workout yet as he prepares for UFC 202 next Saturday against rival Nate Diaz. 

To prepare for the bout McGregor has increased his intensity in training, which he showed off with one particular drill at an open training session last week.

As he lies on the ground in an elevated position on the ground, his coach Owen Roddy kneels over him while the Notorious one does 10 sit ups.

When he's done he stays elevated as Roddy begins to punch McGregor's abdomen 10 times.

In the fly on the wall documentary series, Embedded, McGregor atold the media about the changes he has made since last March, when Diaz shocked the world by defeating McGregor at UFC 196. In the bout between the two, Diaz beat the Dublin brawler to hand the Featherweight champion his first loss in his time with the UFC.

McGregor has been keen to talk up what he has changed since the last fight, telling press last week that he had shelled out over €270,000 (£234,616) to prepare for this fight between accommodation, flights for his team and a gym to train in.

The fight, which will take place next weekend is McGregor's first since the loss.

Originally the fight was due to take place at the coveted UFC 200 last month only for it to be postponed until August because of a dispute between McGregor and UFC.

The fight next weekend is seen as the big cash cow for the UFC, and the build up has got people talking.
