UFC’s reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion Conor McGregor are like Christmas time. He’s simply everywhere. He’s on television, the Internet, and when two teenagers try to play fight in the streets impersonating the champ, he was there to check it out too.
The teenagers were shocked when they realized Conor McGregor ‘s black Cadillac Escalade had parked at the side to watch their moves.
“Instead of using his fists to fight, the 27-year-old fighter used them to fist-bump the two surprised chaps, who had to do a double-take,” according to a report by the Washington Post.
A combative Conor McGregor
McGregor is at a point where he believes he can do anything, that he is invincible. He even posted a photograph of himself wearing a flesh colored underwear, looking fit and ready to fight.
It may have been a way of taunting Floyd Mayweather. But knowing how many fighters are out there trying to challenge and get in the ring with him, it may also have been for his endless list of possible opponents.

He gets more specific talking about his plans to conquer a fight sport other than the MMA.
“I can go and conquer the boxing scene as well, that’s a very serious thought, a very serious conversation that is happening so we’ll see.” Conor McGregor said in a report by BoxingScene.
Former world champion Paulie Malignaggi and even Chris van Heerden with whom an uncut video surfaced showing the UFC champion getting tagged in sparring have already challenged him.
But we all know the real money follows the potential Floyd Mayweather fight, and that’s where he turned his attention for Christmas promising to “break his face” after Floyd released a video on social media saying he’d “slap him if he sees him.”
Dana White’s got McGregor’s back if the two ever met and fought on the street.
“Let me tell you what… you’ve interviewed Floyd Mayweather right? You had the camera down there to the ground right? He’s about this tall. His hands are like peanut brittle, he has to wrap them about ten times so he don’t break his hands. Floyd better hope he don’t run into Conor in the street. Not only will Conor Kick his ass, he’ll kick the sh*t out of everyone of his security guards too – 100%. I would love to be there when Floyd tries to slap Conor McGregor. I promise you Floyd you will never try to walk up and slap Conor McGregor and you know it too,” Dana White said.
“That fight will happen before Floyd Mayweather tries to walk up and slap Conor. He would kick his head into another planet and then murder everyone of his security guards. He’s stepping way over if he thinks he’s going to slap Conor.”
That’s on the street if they meet. But think about what Floyd Mayweather would do if they faced each other in the ring.
