McGregor, 32, was knocked out in the second out of his UFC 257 rematch with fan favourite Poirier in January.

And the promotion’s first simultaneous two-weight world champion is seemingly training harder than ever to get back in the win column.

McGregor has been keeping his legion of fans up to date with his training sessions via his social media pages.

And on Friday night, the proud Irishman posted a series of post-workout snaps of himself covered in sweat to Instagram.

The post’s accompanying caption read: “Hard work is my bread and butter!”

McGregor’s post was preceded by a post-training snap with Cage Warriors lightweight John Mitchell.

He wrote alongside the picture: “Hon the Rebel County. Good work John boy!”

Defeat to Poirier has lit a fire under Ireland’s first UFC champion, so much so his loved ones won’t be around him during his latest training camp.

He said of his son Conor Jr: “I’ve been training my son since day 1. He will be ready if he decides to.

“I am going to do this fight away from the family also. For a change. Fights and boppies and cuddles is a hard one to balance.

“I’m going into this one a wild dog.”

McGregor is relishing his Sin City showdown with Poirier and has promised to put on a masterful display in the desert.

The Dubliner tweeted: “July 10th I will do this absolutely flawlessly. We have these clowns sussed and fully!

“They wanna play a game of tactics? No problem, see you in there.

“You’ve awoken a beast. A beast with the backing of a much higher power! Say your prayers.”

Poirier, however, is confident of a repeat performance in his third meeting with the pride of Dublin, telling ESPN: “I’m gonna stop Conor again.

“July 10, I’m gonna get my hand raised and I’m gonna finish Conor McGregor again.”
