Conor McGregor has arrived in America ahead of his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The UFC star reposted a photo to his Instagram stories from his MMA coach John Kavanagh as the two enjoyed a spot of lunch in the streets of Los Angeles, simply captioned: “Cali.”

The Notorious originally announced that he had arrived on American soil on Tuesday morning when he shared a photo on Instagram standing on a street in California.

He was photographed standing under an umbrella and in front of two black jeeps while holding a cup, wearing a blue T-shirt, white tracksuit bottoms, and white slippers.

McGregor said: “What’s up Cali, the Mac’s back and I’m here to make it rain.”

But the post was quickly deleted by the Dubliner, who is preparing to fight Poirier for a third time on July 10 in Las Vegas.

He had been training for the rematch in Dubai over the last few months after suffering a shock defeat to the American back in January.

McGregor has now moved his training camp over to the States alongside John Kavanagh and Owen Roddy, who joined him in the Middle East a few weeks ago.

He jetted over to the US without his fiancee Dee Devlin and their three children.

The 32-year-old is favourite with the bookies to emerge victorious from the UFC 264 main event, but retired boxer – and McGregor’s long-time rival - Paulie Malignaggi has his doubts.

“I think he's [Conor McGregor] probably going to get his ass kicked again, to be honest,” Malignaggi said.

“But that's okay because they [the fans] will tell you that he wasn't focused again, they'll tell you it's because he just sold his whiskey for $600 million.
