Conor McGregor has taken to the swimming pool after starting his training camp for the long-awaited clash with Floyd Mayweather next month.
After last week's whistle-stop tour to promote the August 26 date with one of boxing's biggest stars, McGregor is stepping up his preparations in Las Vegas.
He is spending time at the city's state-of-the-art UFC Performance Institute and dropped in earlier this week to try out the water treadmill.
McGregor appears set to spend the majority of his five-week training camp in Las Vegas ahead of the fight at the city's T-Mobile Arena.
The UFC Performance Institute will also give him chance to step back into the Octagon as well as a conventional boxing ring, and he will also have the chance to make use of their hydrotherapy and cryotherapy areas.
McGregor will also be working alongside Sky's boxing pundit Paulie Malignaggi in Las Vegas this week, with Malignaggi sparring alongside the UFC superstar.
