UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has a ton of fans, and he’s always sure to show his appreciation to them despite his being an incredibly polarizing figure in the world of mixed martial arts.
In a video that can be seen on TMZ, McGregor and some friends are out for a drive when they see an apartment balcony featuring a cardboard cutout of the champ draped in the flag of his native Ireland. Sure enough, McGregor shouts out to the fan “I’m coming to you tomorrow!”
The best part? McGregor actually followed through and visited the fan, going so far as to tell him “You’re the <expletive> man!”
McGregor is preparing for a fight against Nate Diaz set to go down this weekend, and probably has a busy training schedule ahead of that. In spite of how much he has to do, it’s great to see him take the time to show a fan some love and even sign some autographs to boot.
It just goes to show that for every professional athlete that doesn’t give fans the time of day, there’s one that lives for them.
