Move over, Steven Seagal. There’s a new sheriff in town, and Conor McGregor better be ready. Jean-Claude Van Damme, yes, Mr. Bloodsport himself, was training Nick and Nate Diaz this weekend.

No, not on how to act, but JCVD was teaching the Diaz brothers martial arts moves. How official is their relationship? It’s Twitter official, with its own #TeamJCVD hashtag!

Last week, Diaz claimed he was headed on vacation after UFC president Dana White announced a light heavyweight title tilt between champion Daniel Cormier and interim champ Jon Jones would now headline UFC 200, slamming the door on McGregor vs. Diaz II getting top billing in the July 9 extravaganza.

If by “vacation,” Diaz meant learning some new tricks from Frank Dux himself, then yes, Diaz went on an epic vacation.

White said he expects for McGregor to face the winner of the interim featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar in his next outing to unify the 145-pound crown, but Diaz and McGregor are both still hellbent on running it back as soon as possible. McGregor better iron out his future plans, and fractured relationship with White, immediately because that’s a difference of at least 25 pounds that McGregor needs to start preparing his body for.

According to his Wikipedia page, JCVD obtained a black belt in karate at 18. He also studied kickboxing, Taekwondo and Muay Thai before taking his talents to Hollywood.

You have been warned, McGregor.
