Conor McGregor was witnessed throwing every punch with Michael Conlan during the former Olympian's pro debut on St. Patrick's night. McGregor could be heard imploring Conlan to stick with the jab throughout the fight.
In the dressing room pre-fight, McGregor also had some advice for the Belfast boxer.
iFL TV were backstage to capture Conlan and his crew as he prepared to walk to the ring with McGregor carrying the tricolour.
After complaining that the dressing room was like 'a bleedin' oven', McGregor told Conlan that he shouldn't overindulge on the energy coming from the 5,102 strong crowd at the sold-out Madison Square Garden Theater.
There's a lot of people out there, great energy. Stay calm in it. Feed off it but don't overfeed of it.
You know this, you've been doing it a fuckin' long time.
