There's no denying that Conor McGregor has had a rocky few months, what with his whole bust up with the UFC.

But while that might have changed some people's opinions about The Notorious, the MMA fighter has certainly won over another big name: The Rock.

Dwayne Johnson has posted a photo of himself watching McGregor's documentary Notorious, with a caption saying: "Great insight into the DNA of this successful and smart business man.

"Best part of his success is when you strip it all away - it will always come down to being the hardest worker in the room. Those roots never go away.

"Solid doc. Well done brother."

That's not a bad shout out - especially from someone as high-profile as The Rock.

Last year's documentary was filmed over the course of four years and detailed McGregor's rise through the UFC ranks and his private life. It looked into how a guy from Ireland managed to go from claiming benefits and living in his mum's spare room to commanding attention around the world.

Conor has replied to The Rock's message, saying: "Thank you Rock! Your work ethic is inspiring to me and I appreciate these words very much! Big respect."

But that's not the only person's attention Conor's managed to grab in the last few hours.

Instead of watching the FA Cup final or the royal wedding yesterday, it seems as though Liam Gallagher also watched Notorious and was similarly blown away.

The former Oasis frontman wrote on Twitter: "I've just watched your film Conor McGregor biblical I want you to be in my new music video as you were LG x."

It would be interesting to see what song McGregor would be commissioned for and what he'd have to do in the music video. Conor retweeted the post, so who knows? We could soon be seeing his mug mouthing the words to 'Universal Gleam' or 'Bold'.

In the meantime, most people seem to only really care about when we will next see the fighter in the octagon or the ring or whatever. Sadly though, he's stayed very tight-lipped about that information.

In a pensive tweet last month, he wrote: "It is only a lesson if you learn from it. I learn everyday."

Maybe this alluded to his legal trouble at the Barclays Center in New York City when he allegedly damaged a bus carrying UFC fighters... oh wait, this is where we came in.
