Conor McGregor’s head coach John Kavanagh says the Irishman’s mood is positive as he makes his Octagon return against Donald Cerrone on Sunday.

McGregor has fought at lightweight and featherweight but moves up to welterweight for his first fight since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018.

“The final two weeks were about calorie deficit and sometimes things could get a bit tetchy,” said Kavanagh.

“Instead of that there’s dancing, music is playing, high-fiving and smiling.”

Since his defeat by Nurmagomedov, which ended in a mass brawl in the octagon, McGregor has faced an assault charge and allegations of smashing a fan’s phone.

The 31-year-old remains the biggest draw in the sport with the Las Vegas fight set to break pay-per-view figures.

McGregor may be fighting at a new weight and with a new mood in the camp, but Kavanagh believes his man will overcome the ‘Cowboy’ at UFC 246.
