Take a look at the training video below:

McGregor has already warned Diaz just how seriously he’s treating the rematch next weekend.

"I'm taking this contest very, very seriously," he said.

"I've flown in specific body types to replicate Nate's skinny, tall frame. The boy won the lotto last time, he knows it, I know it... well August 20th I get my revenge and I look forward to it."

The Irishman is certainly looking for revenge after his step up to welterweight in March resulted in Diaz winning by submission in the second round.

"What's the main guy? John Cena," the UFC featherweight champion said at a gym day to promote UFC 202.

"He's 40. He's 40 years of age. He's walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He's a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f*cker."
