Video: This McGregor, Rogan parody is absolute genius, sparks response from ‘Notorious’

New, comments

As the most popular fighter in combat sport today, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar Conor McGregor is often imitated for his brash persona, legendary trash talk, in-cage mannerisms, and world-class striking. Many have also poked fun at the bad side of “Notorious,” such as his out-of-cage issues and Octagon defeats.

Some of the most impressive and memorable imitations of McGregor have come from professional impressionist Al Foran, who has made a living out of mimicking some of the most famous celebrities in the world today. Foran, who has been releasing videos for the past four years, is one of the best McGregor impersonators you will ever hear. Foran also does spot-on imitations of Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Mike Tyson, Eddie Murphy, and President Donald Trump.

While Foran has released some pretty hilarious McGregor parodies over the years his most recent impersonation may take the cake. This time around, Foran has McGregor signing on to the The Joe Rogan Experience podcast and discussing his UFC career in absolute hilarity. Check it out above courtesy of Twitter

That bald cap on Rogan is something else, isn’t it?

Funny enough, McGregor has never been featured on The Joe Rogan Experience, although he would be one of the more popular guests to be on it. If “Notorious” ever did make it on the renowned podcast he’d likely discuss his feud with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz, while explaining his legendary trash talk that disrupts so many opponents before a fight.

This recent impression by Foran was so spot on that even McGregor himself had to reach out to pay respect.

“Haha I’ll give you this one Al ya little bollox,” wrote McGregor via Twitter.

“I appreciate the laughs at this time AL,” added McGregor after officially following Foran on Twitter. “Thank you my brother. Call it a day now.”

There’s obviously more important things to worry about these days, but hopefully this McGregor parody injects some humor into your weekend. At the end of the day, there aren’t many comedians pumping out McGregor and Rogan impersonations at the same time.

What say you, Maniacs? Is this one of the best MMA parodies you’ve ever seen?

Let’s hear it!
