MIXED Martial Arts superstar Conor McGregor has tipped World Champion boxer Michael Conlan to claim Olympic gold in Rio this summer after securing a new pair of boots for the Belfast man.

Michael Conlan took to Twitter to thank McGregor for sourcing the Reebok boots that he will wear in Rio in August.

And McGregor, who is preparing for a rematch with Nate Diaz in Las Vegas also in August, responded by tipping Michael for glory.

McGregor has been training with the Irish team as part of his buildup to the Diaz fight where he will hope to get revenge for his loss against the American fighter in March.
