Previously unreleased footage of McGregor entering the arena before his March 2016 UFC 196 loss to Nate Diaz is released. As McGregor heads for the octagon, draped in the Irish tricolour, to the sounds of Sinéad O’Connor’s Foggy Dew, he says:

Sing to me Sinéad. Sing me into war.

Coach Kavanagh issues encouragement to his fighter before the walk is made.

He shouldn’t have asked for it. Now he’s gonna get it.

McGregor lost to a rear naked chokehold towards the end of the second round.
