McGregor always has an Americano, while he also has keeps himself hydrated and speeds up recovery with water and protein shakes.

"I eat good meat - chicken, salmon, some steak - and a lot of quality greens and some fruits like bananas, " he told Ask Men, via the Daily Mail.

"I eat eggs - an omelet with my Americano for a late breakfast or brunch.

"Getting enough protein is important when I train, to help build muscle and recover, so I'll supplement with protein shakes.

"I drink mostly water or coconut water. It's important to stay hydrated - first thing I do in the morning is stretch and drink water. "

According to ESPN's Ariel Helwani, McGregor is targeting a further two fights in 2020, including a summer bout with either Jorge Masvidal or Nate Diaz and a rematch with Khabib, who dominated him at UFC 239 in October.
