Watch: Conor McGregor surprises fan by turning up at his apartment

Football News

UFC superstar Conor McGregor gave one of his fans an experience he'll never forget this week as he continues his preparations for UFC 196.

The Irishman, currently in training on the West Coast of America, went out of his way to drop in on a fan after seeing a cardboard cutout of himself on the man's balcony as he drove to the gym.

Unexpected visitor

As you might expect, the fan was beside himself when McGregor appeared at his door and he welcomed the fighter into his home. Fortunately, the once-in-a-lifetime moment was captured by a TMZ camera crew and you can scroll down this article to watch it for yourself.

Warning: The video contains NSFW language and, somewhat surprisingly, McGregor isn't the only one to blame this time.

It is great to see McGregor engage with his fan base like that - so many high-profile superstars these days appear disconnected with those who cheer them on. Just watching the guy's reaction to sharing a room with his hero shows it was worth it.

Growing support

On the back of seven straight wins to begin his UFC career, it is fair to say Conor McGregor's fan base has grown massively since the Irishman made his debut in the organisation back in 2013.

The Dublin-born star has always had the Irish supporters behind him, but, as proven in this video, there are fans around the globe who are now fully invested in the 27-year-old's UFC career.

Of course, that will most definitely be the case this coming Saturday night when McGregor enters the Octagon against Nate Diaz at UFC 196.

Challenge ahead

The Irishman may be able to relax with fans right now as he prepares for his eighth UFC fight, but by the time round one begins you can be sure his jokey persona seen in the above video will have been replaced by the same killer instinct that saw McGregor take just 13 seconds to defeat Jose Aldo back in 2015.

Despite the last-minute nature of the fight - McGregor's original opponent, Rafael dos Anjos, pulled out with a broken foot - UFC fans will be watching on in their millions to see whether McGregor can once again come out on top.

Whilst Diaz might hope that, as an American, he has the support of his countrymen for the Las Vegas fight, we now know at least one fan in Los Angeles will be proudly displaying his Irish flag when McGregor and Diaz get to it.
