Video: Conor McGregor duped by shameless ‘super fan’ outside Brooklyn bail bondsman


Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, has millions of mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, from hardcore to casual. To get an idea of his popularity, consider that some tiny, jacked-up bodybuilder can paint his hair and cover himself in fake tattoos and get mobbed everywhere he goes.

The proof is right here.

That said, there is perhaps no bigger McGregor “super fan” and Barstool “nerd” than Robbie Fox, who made the trek to Brooklyn for the “Notorious” court hearing last week, which stems from last April’s bus attack that left multiple fighters injured (full video here).

Fox can be seen cheering for the UFC pay-per-view (PPV) king throughout the skit, then dupes McGregor into taking a fan photo outside the local bail bondsman. Amazing what the Irish flag and some cardboard signs can get you these days.

As for McGregor, he returns to court on July 26 where he is expected to cut a deal that will keep him out of jail.
