Cue some leather pants vocals and a heart moving guitar riff for Conor McGregor. McGregor starts his face turn with this video of him dancing on the beach. Couple McGregor’s hip movement with the sunset off in the distance and you find yourself pulling for this scrappy young Irishman.
Only a humble underdog would train to the sounds of a 1980s power ballad. Forgot the last 24 months of shit talk, bravado, unfounded accusations flung at UFC champion Jose Aldo, and the general “I’m a rich asshole who wears sunglasses indoors, wears tailored suits, and has so much more money than you common folks” vibe. That can all be forgiven with some epic guitar riffs and McGregor training on the beaches like the common man.
McGregor face turn? Who are we kidding? Five seconds after this vine video wrapped up McGregor sped off in his new Bentley, threw some half eaten $500 caviar out into the streets, and then said something very profane yet slightly racist about Jose Aldo.
H/T to @NewYorkRic for the beautiful vine
