Conor McGregor makes a kind of fucked up, delirious national anti-hero, and I'm sure Ireland would have it no other way. In the short breaths between being scrappy and crass, he still maintains his wink of charm.

So you'd imagine that enough of the country would be emulating the man in brawls on random street corners – all in tribute to his wonderful, two-belt owning self. But lucky for these two Celtic wannabe ultimate fighters on the streets of Dublin, Conor McGregor just so happened to be driving by when they were sparring, and delighted the hell out of them with a surprise stop.

How are we sure that it's McGregor himself? Here are a couple of pics from the same night, with him donning a similar coat.

It would only take my most cynical self to say that this whole thing was staged for PR, but it seems like Conor isn't really concerned about drawing attention to himself lately.

So, it seems that you can pretend to be your favourite athlete and they'll conjure themselves out of thin air. Truly magical.
