UFC 196's Conor McGregor mingles with the locals, hits nightclubs before Rafael dos Anjos title fight

Conor McGregor has one of the biggest fights of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career on the horizon, as he is set to battle Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight champion, Rafael dos Anjos, in the main event of UFC 196 on March 5, 2016.

Full fight card here.

So you can't fault the Featherweight kingpin for blowing off a little steam in his home country of Ireland before flying out to "Sin City."

And that's just what "Notorious" did recently, as The Mirror reports that Conor was doing a bit of club hopping in Galway, Ireland and greeting the locals while posing for selfies.

As you can tell in the video embedded above, McGregor is all about staying loose before fight night.

Of course, no one actually knows what kind of partying he actually did, but it's safe to assume the "Notorious" one kept in moderation before he attempts to make history becoming the first man to ever hold two title in different divisions at the same time inside the Octagon.

Thankfully, Conor doesn't work for the NFL, as media outlets all over the country would be having a field day with this one.

Right, Johnny?
