If by now you don’t know what’s going down on August 26 between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, then where have you been?
It’s shaping up to be the sporting event of the year, and the hype train has well and truly left the station.
Mick Konstantin thought he’d chime in with his own hot take on the upcoming fight, by writing a song about McGregor’s journey so far.
Just throwing up the yearly tune, and for the month that's in it, thought I'd do one on Conor McGregor, and the fight coming up against Mayweather. Tried to get as many of his famous lines in as possible, so hope ye like it!And if anyone out there knows Conor personally, feel free to pass the song on to him, sound! Lyrics:A kid from Dublin with more than a dreamHe knew one day he'd be the king of the UFCWith a group of fighting Irish not to be pushed overNot here to take part they were here to take overFrom the start John Kavanagh by his sideWhoever thought they'd be known worldwideAfter 60g's baby and a contract to signLeaving his old life and the social welfare behindAfter 2 years came the featherweight champion of the worldConor said he'd make him look like a little girlIt only took ten seconds to show his talk wasn't cheapAs he connected with the left, and put ALDO TO SLEEP!There's only one Conor McGregor, and there's no fighter betterAnd he's going to knock out Floyd MayweatherSo Floyd watch out cos the Irish are comingYou can talk all you want, buy you'll do nothin!The lightweight belt was next in storeTo do what no other fighter had ever done beforeBecame the first same time double champ in historyAnd took the chance to apologize to absolutely nobodyCame from working on a building siteTo getting million dollar pay cheques from Dana WhiteAnd now his money, his cars and his clothes he flauntsCos the double champ does what the f**k he wantsMayweather, your old and your smallAnd the truth is that you'll do feck allCos precision beats power and timing beats speed"Why have you got a school bag Floyd you can't even read"Well he dresses to kill, buys lamborghinis at willCan get inside your head like he was Dr. PhilAnd if you call him out, have a good reason whyOr he'll turn around and say who the f**k is that guyAnd on the 26th of August we're taking over VegasThe Irish invasion you can't mistake usSinging songs day and night til our voices are soreCos when one of us goes, we all go to war!!

The catchy-as-hell song was posted on Facebook with the caption:

The post has racked up almost three million views since its upload, and it’s not hard to see why.
The song captures the Irish support for Notorious and absolutely lays into Mayweather.
Some of the lyrics include:
There’s only one Conor McGregor, and there’s no fighter better.
And he’s going to knock out Floyd Mayweather.
So Floyd watch out cos the Irish are comin’.
You can talk all you want, but you’ll do nothin’.
Thanks to the power of the internet, it seemed inevitable that McGregor would get wind of this cheeky little number.
He’s actually reached out to Mick, and he’s given him the best response.
He told MMA Fighting:
It was one hell of a song. It’s a very catchy song. We actually reached out to the guy.
I had my people reach out to him and we’re booking him a flight, him plus one.
We’re going to bring him over to the fight and get him tickets and put him up in a hotel and I’m going to meet him maybe after the fight. It’s one hell of a song.
I’m going to bring him in as a thank you for the support. What a song, it’s the journey in music form.
Myself and my team, we enjoyed it very much, so we’re going to fly him out.
Mick confirmed this on his Facebook account.
He has been on Irish TV and the song is due to come out as a single.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are set to fight on August 26.
