Conor McGregor impersonator fools crowd during open workout

Friday, July 28, 2017

In the last few years, it’s been obvious that one fighter has risen above all else in terms of super stardom and that’s Conor McGregor. And ahead of his freak show/super fight/spectacle against boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr, the UFC champion and superstar looks to be putting on a lot of extra muscle to give him the edge in the squared circle.

But there’s just one problem…this isn’t the real Conor McGregor.

In the following video bodybuilder and street workout athlete Islam Badurgov puts on his best Conor face…literally as he struts his way down to muscle beach to give the unsuspecting audience an open workout, complete with perfectly matching tattoo’s, beard, sunglasses and even cauliflower ears.

Amazingly through the prank, “Conor” manages to fool a very large group of eager fans despite not speaking a single word, only doing the trademark confident laugh while chewing on some gum.

Can you tell the difference between the fake and real Conor McGregor? Check out the full clip below.

Conor Anthony McGregor is an Irish professional mixed martial artist who is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and former UFC Featherweight Champion. In 2015, at UFC 194, McGregor defeated José Aldo for the featherweight championship via knockout after thirteen seconds in the first round. This was the fastest victory in UFC title fight history. Upon defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship, at UFC 205 he became the only fighter in UFC history to hold titles in two divisions simultaneously.

He is known for being the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA, as well as his extravagant lifestyle and trash talking. [Source: Wiki]
