Conor McGregor was filmed arriving at the fighter’s hotel for UFC 257 – and he made a big entrance.
The Notorious checked into the Dubai-based location ahead of his first fight in 12 months, a rematch against Dustin Poirier on January 23.
Having started his training camp 12 weeks ago, the Irishman is now just days away from entering the Octagon again.
And footage has emerged of him arriving at the venue in the usual McGregor style.
In the clip, a black Rolls Royce pulls up to a crowd of media and fans who are all wearing face masks and full white body-suits.
One supporter starts shouting wildly as McGregor gets out and comes round the far side of the luxury car.
And he poses for the cameras, wearing nothing but some patterned green and grey trousers.
Swaggering across the hotel entrance, The Notorious’ fans are delighted to see the UFC star as he reached in the car to pick up his eldest son, Conor Jr.
Wearing a yellow T-shirt and black shorts, the three-year-old sits in his dad’s arms as they enter the hotel.
McGregor will step into the Octagon at UFC 257 for the first time since seeing of Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds.
And the 32-year-old will be looking for a repeat of his victory over Poirier six years ago, which he won in just two rounds.
And the Irishman’s coach John Kavanagh warned last week that his star man is in incredible shape for the bout.
Speaking to YouTube channel TheMacLife, he said: “I just think you have to look at his physical appearance for a start.
“My dad keeps ringing me scared that Conor’s after putting on too much weight because he looks like a tank at this stage.

“But weight is on track. Everything’s on track both physically and mentally.
“We actually came across a video of him from after the first Diaz fight, however long ago that was.
“He’s almost unrecognisable looking at the difference between the fights.
“He’s really developed as a professional athlete and at 32, he’s entering his physical and mental prime. So we’re in for some good times.”
But McGregor may also have an eye on his next fight as rival Khabib Nurmagomedov is also on fight island having talks with chief Dana White amid rematch rumours.
