Conor McGregor has flown his private DJ out to Fight Island for his UFC 257 after party.

The former two-weight world champion takes on Dustin Poirier on Sunday morning in a rematch of their 2014 clash.

McGregor KO’d Poirier inside two minutes on that occasion and has promised an even faster finish more than six years later.

And he is cutting no corners when it comes to his post-fight celebrations – despite the coronavirus pandemic continuing to range.

McGregor has flown Conor Bissett to the Middle East from Dublin in order to make sure the tunes are flowing.

The 26-year-old was part of McGregor’s camp for his clash with Donald Cerrone 12 months ago.

He provided the soundtrack to his training sessions but was prevented from joining McGregor this time.

But he was instead flown out to Abu Dhabi yesterday and will perform at a secret location in the hours after the main event.

House DJ Bissett told Mirror Fighting: “My music started blowing up in Dublin in 2019 and my name’s been all around.

“He’d heard of me and listening to my stuff on social media. I was coming back from Ministry of Sound in London last year and I woke up to a message from him on Instagram.

“He asked me to come over to DJ for a week and a half in Vegas.”

McGregor has assembled a large coaching team in recent years including head trainer John Kavanagh, striking coach Owen Roddy, conditioning coaches Dr Julian Dalby and Colin Byrne and boxing coach Phil Sutcliffe.

And Bissett believes his local roots were key to him joining the team.

He added: “I only live five minutes from where he;’s from so I’d say he looked at me as being homegrown.

“He wants to look after his own and make people from Dublin come through and do well for ourselves.

“It was unbelievable, I was speechless. It was a great moment in my career.”
