A Night With Team Conor McGregor

A NIGHT AT THE UFC TRAINING CENTER WITH TEAM MCGREGOR
By Peter Carroll, FIGHTLAND
Tom Egan drives the team van towards the UFC training center as the "Mac Mansion" crew get ready for their daily session. Artem Lobov is riding shotgun. Featherweight title contender Conor McGregor took off beforehand in his Ford Mustang along with his long-term girlfriend Dee Devlin, with a view to meeting the others at the infamous TUF gym.

Owen Roddy is reliving the visit of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Henderson estate earlier that day with Frans Mlambo and Joey Breslin in the back, and everybody is getting in on the fun. Egan seems the most affected by the meeting with his childhood hero. His accurate impressions of the Austrian begin a debate about which of the cult hero’s movies they will be watching later.

James Gallagher and Lee Hammond are constantly going back and forth, a big burst of laughter breaks the pitter patter of their conversation every few seconds. "Arnie" is a bit before their time but Roddy and Breslin assure them that they will get their education based on tonight’s viewing back at the mansion. It’s a toss up between Predator and Commando.
