Imagine hanging out in your apartment while Connor McGregor drives by in a Rolls Royce, and after seeing a massive cardboard cut-out of him on your balcony, he shouts up to you ‘I’m gonna come up to you tomorrow.’ And then – he actually shows up.
Well it happened to this guy, who also happens to be a super fan of McGregor. And his reaction is amazing.
Basically, McGregor was driving around Southern California with his crew when he spotted a cardboard cutout of himself and an Irish flag on an apartment balcony.
In the video the guy who owns the apartment can be heard shouting ‘you’re the man’ to the featherweight champ, who shouts back to say he’ll come round tomorrow and – spoiler – he actually does.
The megafan can hardly contain himself – smiling and giggling like a schoolgirl who just met the Biebs.
Skip to 1:16 to get straight to the reaction.
Love him or hate him, this is a moment that shows behind all that fame lies a guy who’s just truly appreciative of his success and his fans who helped get him there.
Which is nice to see in this day and age.
