December 20, 2016 2:54 pm by Russell Ess

Comedian Al Foran has a lot of impersonations that he can do.

From UFC superstar Conor McGregor to Robert De Niro, some of Foran’s impersonations that he does are scary good.

Here we take a look at Foran talking with MMA legend Wanderlei Silva.

The two interact in a friendly video piece as Foran jumps from character to character from UFC fan and famed chef Gordon Ramsay to actor Joe Pesci.

“Hi, I’m Gordon Ramsay, here with Wanderlei Silva,” Foran says with his chef impression. “Big MMA fan. Wanderlei, I’m a massive fan, ok. Massive fan. You’re here for the Bellator event. Are you looking forward to it? Come on Wanderlei, are you looking forward to it?”

Silva can’t control his laughter as he says, “He’s good, he’s good.”

Foran then goes on to impersonate celebrities such as Mike Tyson, Stone Cold Steve Austin and then goes to Dublin’s own superstar, Conor McGregor.

“Wanderlei, what’s up brudda,” Foran says in the familiar voice. “Welcome to Dublin, you’re more than welcome here!”

Wanderlei then takes his chance to get “The Notorious” impersonator and grabs him in a headlock as the two joke around with the humorous skit.

Wanderlei Silva came out of retirement this year as Bellator MMA announced an “exclusive multi-year, multi-fight contract with the promotion,” but is not eligible to fight until the Spring of 2017 with his active suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission, which was given for evading a random drug test back in 2014.

Silva was scheduled to fight Chael Sonnen in the UFC back in 2014, but the fight was canceled due to both Silva and Sonnen’s incidents with drug testing. Now, both fighters are signed with Bellator and the match they have been waiting for could finally take place next year.

Sonnen is scheduled to make his first appearance in the Bellator cage at Bellator 170 against MMA legend Tito Ortiz. Ortiz has stated that the bout with Sonnen will be the last of his career.
