VIDEO: Ido Portal has arrived in Vegas and he's already working on movement patterns with Conor McGregor

Ido Portal is in the house.

The polarising movement coach has arrived at Conor McGregor's Las Vegas gym as the Irishman's rematch with Nate Diaz draws ever closer.

The main event of UFC 202 is just a week away and Portal has been drafted in to make sure that 'The Notorious' is as sharp as ever on his feet.

McGregor is an ardent admirer of Portal's work and has enlisted his help in his last three training camps.

The Israeli movement expert has drawn his fair share of criticism as old-fashioned fighters have tended to turn their noses up to the relatively modern phenomenon.

Nate Diaz has been outspoken in his ridicule for the "little goofy motherfucker" and famously said "you're playing touch-butt with that dork in the park" in the run-up to UFC 196.

Whether you're a believer or not, watching Portal offer his expertise to McGregor makes for almost hypnotic viewing.
