WATCH: Conor McGregor is having no issues cutting weight ahead of Saturday's fight

The Dubliner fights Nate Diaz on Saturday night in Las Vegas

Conor McGregor has openly admitted about the hardship of cutting weight for featherweight fights.

He has especially looked gaunt when weighing in for fights in recent years, most notably against Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo. It looks like those days are over and we will see a fresher looking McGregor on the scales on Friday night.

McGregor has moved up two weight divisions ahead of his fight with Nate Diaz. After originally being scheduled to fight Rafael dos Anjos and 155lbs, McGregor has moved up to 170lbs to face the Californian.

UFC have released the first Embedded ahead of the fight and it shows McGregor enjoying a steak ahead of the fight. "It's nine days to the fight. We just trained for four and a half hours straight there and I'm still full of injury." 

Such is McGregor's energy and ability to stay on course to make the weight, his team are comparing his pre-fight eating habits to UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson.
