Surprise! Conor McGregor crashes UFC super fan's apartment, signs autographs and takes pics (Video)

New, comments

Even if you don't like Conor McGregor, it's nearly impossible to dislike this recent video from TMZ.

The reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight kingpin was driving down the streets of Los Angeles, Calif., and noticed his cardboard doppelganger out front of someone's apartment complex, complete with Irish flag. He promised the "Notorious" super fan that one day he would stop to say hello.

And he did.

Once inside, the flashbulbs were popping and the ballpoint pens were rolling -- a pretty nice gesture considering the major mixed martial arts (MMA) event that's just around the corner.

McGregor is bumping up to welterweight to throw hands with Nate Diaz in the UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner, which takes place this Saturday night (March 5, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that fight here).

I think it's safe to say we know who this fan will be rooting for.
