Meet The Motley Crew Of Team McGregor

Meet the motley crew that is Team McGregor
By Brett Okamoto,
LAS VEGAS -- John Kavanagh, head coach of Irish superstar Conor McGregor, hates the word 'entourage.'

At least, he hates if when it's being used in any way to describe the large group of people who have inhabited the seven-bedroom house in Las Vegas, rented by Conor McGregor, during the past nine weeks.

"I don't know why, but 'entourage' bothers me," Kavanagh says. "It makes it sound like we're running around doing things for him. We're a training camp."

McGregor (17-2) faces the biggest fight of his career on Saturday, when he'll meet Chad Mendes (17-2) for the UFC's interim featherweight title. He was originally scheduled to fight Jose Aldo for the undisputed belt, but Aldo withdrew late last month due to a rib injury.

To prepare for the opportunity, McGregor, who fights out of Dublin, invited a cast of 13 people to spend more than two months with him in Las Vegas. The group consists of his girlfriend, eight training partners, two coaches, one masseuse and one documentary filmmaker.
