Here’s Exactly What Conor McGregor Is Eating In Preparation For Mayweather Bout

Considering the fact that he used to cut to 145lbs to compete in the UFC featherweight division, Conor McGregor doesn’t have the toughest weight cut ahead of his 154lb fight with Floyd Mayweather and by the looks of these pics, he’s certainly not having to forgo tasty meals!

In seven of his ten UFC bouts, the Irishman has fought at featherweight but those days look to be behind him after a couple of welterweight clashes with Nate Diaz and, most recently, a successful lightweight challenge against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 that saw him become the 155lb champion.

Despite the fact that he will be fighting closer to his natural weight, The Notorious will still have to cut in order to get down to 154lbs so he’s re-enlisted the help of George Lockhart to shed those extra kilos.

Lockhart is a nutritionist and former MMA fighter who has been with McGregor ever since his training camp for Jose Aldo at the back end of 2015.

He recently detailed how his approach to cutting for a boxing match differed from an MMA match.

“With an MMA match, with wrestling and having someone on top of you, weight matters – with wrestling it does have a huge effect. With boxing, I believe speed is key,” Lockhart told MMA Junkie. “If I’m bigger than you but can’t hit you, it doesn’t make a whole lot of difference. Not as much grappling, the referee pulls you apart as soon as that does happen…I want to make sure the fighter is lower in weight, the cut is not as big and the reload is not as much.”

Lockhart has also been keeping a detailed account of the meals that he prepares for McGregor and posting pics of them to his Instagram account. Check these bad boys out…
