It’s good to be Conor McGregor. The Interim UFC Featherweight Champion’s stock rose when he took home the strap at “UFC 189” after knocking Chad “Money” Mendes out in just two rounds. His stardom in America is nothing compared to the level of popularity he is at in Ireland; the man is a pop-culture icon over there!
McGregor claims the streets shut down when he fights and seeing how fans reacted to his return to Ireland, it doesn’t seem like a stretch! The fans at the airport went nuts when McGregor came home with the gold and it was obvious he was flattered and humbled. They say the sincerest form of flattery is imitation, though, and there’s no shortage of McGregor impersonators!
One fan has Conor’s voice mastered and he crank calls McGregor’s personal suit-tailor. Check it out in the video below— it’s priceless!
McGregor is preparing to unify his interim championship at “UFC 194” this December when he steps into the octagon with a returning Jose Aldo. The two were originally scheduled to face in July at “UFC 189”, but Aldo was forced to pull out of the bout due to a rib injury. Who do you think will prevail at UFC 194?
