Watch Conor McGregor shout instructions to and coach potential UFC opponent during fight ahead of Jon Jones' return | The Sun

CONOR MCGREGOR made a special appearance at UFC 285 – where he gave some unlikely cageside advice to a fellow lightweight.

The Notorious was in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena to watch Jon Jones challenge Ciryl Gane for the heavyweight title.

But it wasn't the main eventers McGregor was shouting instructions at.

No, the UFC superstar donned his coaching cap as he gave instructions to Jalin Turner during his main card clash with Mateusz Gamrot.

In footage captured by SunSport, McGregor could be heard saying: "Don't be lazy stay up."

In a video shot elsewhere and later in the fight, he said: "Let your right hand go, yes.

"Let your right hand go. Right hand to the head, right hand to the body.

"Keep that knee, he's stepping in the middle.

"There you go – and again. Make the meaningly. Yes, beautiful, beautiful.

McGregor, 34, is currently in Las Vegas coaching season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Michael Chandler.
