Conor McGregor is the biggest star in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts and is one of the biggest sports athlete in the world right now. Conor belongs to Ireland and has been praised across the country for his immense contribution to the community and for making his country proud at the global level. However, the praise seems to have turned into an obsession for a fan as she chooses Conor to win a fight against former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson.
Mike is one of the greatest boxers in the history of boxing, and he is known for his ferocity and brutal strength. Mike has fought against legendry fighters in his career and has even delivered some of the most brutal knockouts in the boxing history. Despite retirement, Mike still is an eminent threat to anyone who desires to step inside the ring with him, and when you are 70-80 pounds lighter than him, the threat multiplies.
An Irish fan was asked to choose between Mike and Conor if both were to fight each other. Many of the fans would have chosen Mike because of the weight difference, but the Irish fan shockingly choose Conor just because he was Irish. The interview was the part of the American talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
