Speaking prior to the UFC 257 weigh-in, McGregor's coach John Kavanagh spoke about his star pupil's "phenomenal" shape.

"He's on target. Weight is something that weighs on our mind," he told SPORTbible.

"So, for the last couple of months he's had certain targets to hit every few weeks and he's been spot on the whole way through.

"We're anticipating a very gentle and easy water weight cut, but he is in phenomenal shape - mentally and physically."

On his mentality, he added: "I liked [Max] Holloway's quote that this is shaved-head Conor. It's all business!

"I don't remember the last time seeing him like this and he's very excited about it. A busy year. Let's focus on this one, we're not looking past Dustin, but I'm anticipating a busy year."

McGregor's Octagon return is just a couple of sleeps away. What's your prediction? Let us know.
