Conor McGregor took to the beach and climbed aboard a digger as the Irishman began his rebuilding job following his devastating UFC 257 defeat.

The 32-year-old was knocked out in the second round by Dustin Poirier at Fight Isaland in his much-anticipated return to the Octagon  after a year, the first stoppage loss of his career.

The defeat has left many questioning what the charismatic Irishman’s next move in UFC will be, with a trilogy fight with Poirier now expected to be on the horizon.

But after completing his media duties, McGregor’s first port of call was to head from Abu Dhabi to the nearby Dubai to spend some quality time with his family.

The Notorious posted a video on his Instagram page of he and his son in diggers on the beach as the job to rebuild his career began. 

‘Back on the sites, it happens the best of us. We’ll build it back #DublinMiniDiggers’, McGregor wrote alongside the video.

The post showed McGregor sounding in high spirits as the pair relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company, lifting the Dubai sound around with the mechanical machines.

McGregor posted previously to praise his opponent for his victory, with a photo of himself with his leg elevated, after revealing the Poirier’s brutal showing left it swelled up to the size of an American football. 

McGregor had hoped a victory over Poirier would set up a rematch with arch rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, having lost to the Dagestani in October 2018.

When asked on what he wants to do yet, Poirier insisted a trilogy fight with McGregor ‘interests’ him.
