Conor McGregor brings fan close to tears after surprise visit to LA apartment

“I’m blown away this,” says the UFC featherweight champion after spotting a cardboard cut-out of himself surrounded by tricolours.

CONOR MCGREGOR IS putting in the final preparations for his welterweight debut against Nate Diaz in the main event at UFC 196 in Las Vegas this Saturday night.

However, the Dubliner has still got time to show the fans just how much they mean to him.

While driving down a Los Angeles street, The Notorious spots a cardboard cut-out of himself covered in Irish tricolours on a lit-up balcony.

And the following day, he decides to treat the owner of the apartment to a surprise visit.

While McGregor admits that he’s “blown away” by how the US people have taken to him, you can see just how much it means to this MMA fanatic, who is holding back the tears after the meet-and-greet.
