Did Conor McGregor train Merab Dvalishvili?

Dvalishvili is supposed to fight Yan and the tension seems to rise as Petr Yan shoved Merab Dvalishvili in the face offs. Merab trains with Sterling, who can give him good advice, as Sterling fought Yan twice.

However, the video that went viral on the internet recently is of Merab Dvalishvili and Conor McGregor posing inside the ring in performance institute. This sparked rumors that Dvalishvili was trained by Conor McGregor for his fight against Petr Yan.

These rumors however have no truth to it as these guys just seem to have crossed paths in the UFC Performance Institute. McGregor is there for the shoot of TUF 31 and Merab has a fight coming up this weekend.

It would have been interesting to see them train together, but they were all rumors and nothing more to it. Both Merab and Yan look ready for the fight. Petr Yan is a betting favorite and fans expect him to geet the job done this weekend.
