Conor McGregor is a man to be feared inside the octagon and he has taken the MMA world by storm since his professional debut back in 2008.

As the UFC featherweight champion and the prime contender for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 205 in New York, McGregor is a huge box office name that is sure to make the UFC's first splash in the Big Apple a most lucrative one.

However, does he get his hands dirty on the street? A recent video that has surfaced suggests he just might.

Two young kids are seen scrapping in the video embedded below before late in the clip, a man dressed in similar, smart attire to that of which McGregor is famous for bearing an almost identical accent breaks it up.

The man, who McGregor has not confirmed is him yet, says: "Want me to give you a f****** clatter?" to the boy who is mounting the other.

You only get a quite glimpse of the man's face in the video, but certainly the haircut and build all match that of the famous Irish fighter.

Unfortunately, it was all too good to be true. McGregor's coach John Kavanagh took to Twitter to deny his fighter's involvement as you can see by the post below.

To be fair, why would McGregor be wearing one of his extremely expensive three-piece suits while casually roaming the streets? It was certainly no press conference.

Also, it appears to be two Irish lads scrapping, and McGregor is said to be training in the States ahead of his big night at Madison Square Garden.
