The build up is almost finally complete for Conor McGregor's UFC Featherweight Title fight against Jose Aldo. 

Overnight in Las Vegas, McGregor took part in an open workout at the MGM Grand, where Aldo also featured on front of an audience that included many Irish fans. 

McGregor looked relaxed on front of the audience and spoke to the UFC's reporter Megan Olivi about the reception he received from the Irish fans. "I'm blown away every time. It gives me energy. I cut no corners. In the previous fight there were many obstacles in the way that hampered my training and hampered my weight, so this time there was nothing. It was clean."

Thousands of Irish fans are still arriving in Las Vegas, with many of those expected to fill the MGM Grand later today for the weigh-ins ahead of the fight.
