Conor McGregor’s laser-like focus is his secret weapon, says the UFC star’s trainer John Kavanagh.
The 32-year-old is currently preparing for a rematch with Dustin Poirier on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
The Dubliner lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, although followed that up with a comprehensive first-round win over Donald Cerrone 12 months ago.
But despite lengthy periods without fighting and an array of commercial interests, Kavanagh insists McGregor is more determined than ever before.
“He’s very good at compartmentalising,” said Kavanagh.
