Conor McGregor loves *that* song so much, he's flying the singer out to Las Vegas

The internet works.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE have seen Mick Konstantin’s song dedicated to Conor McGregor at this stage.

You can’t crack open Facebook these days without it popping up, and it’s a catchy number:

McGregor himself even gave it a share, as its infectious lyrics and bouncy ukulele got stuck in everyone’s head.

Now McGregor has gone one step further than just a simple Facebook share – he’s bringing Mick to the fight against Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas later this month.

In an in-depth interview with the MMAFighting YouTube channel today, he was asked about the build-up to the fight, the widespread accusations of racism, and what he expects in two weeks’ time.

He was also asked about Mick’s viral song – and McGregor revealed he’d already been in touch:

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 the guy and we’re booking him a flight, him plus one. I’m going to bring him over to the fight and get him tickets and put him up in a hotel, and I’ll meet him after the fight. It’s one hell of a song.


He couldn’t confirm whether Mick was going to play him out to the ring, but had nothing but nice things to say about the tune:

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, and we’re going to fly the guy out. Him and a friend.

Mick said last night on TV3′s The Six O’Clock Show that he’s “free that weekend”, so he’d better get the bags packed.

And don’t forget the ukulele, he might be needing it.
