Conor McGregor Offers To Fight Comedian For His 'Terrible Impressions' Of Him

Conor McGregor has taken a virtual swipe at comedian Al Foran, offering him a fight for his 'terrible impressions' of him. You can watch the offending impression (along with many others) below:

The Irish funny man is known for his hilarious takes of the UFC legend and others, including Joe Rogan, Mike Tyson, Gary Neville and Harry Kane.

But it would seem that the Notorious has just had enough.

Foran had been named on the undercard of a charity boxing event that's been organised by fellow comedian Stevo Timothy, who is going at it with Olympic medalist Paddy Barnes in a wheelchair bout.

And after Timothy announced that the impressionist was looking for an opponent to step in the ring for him, McGregor let him know he was up for the challenge.

Sharing the tweet, the two-weight UFC champion said: "I'll fight this imposter in the co-main! Terrible impressions of me he is doing years."

Ouch.

I think I speak for everyone when I say I would not like to be in the comedian's shoes right now.

Responding to the message, Foran retweeted it with a gif of a very shaken WWE boss Vince McMahon - you know the one.

He then followed it up with a tongue in cheek video message accepting McGregor's offer of a fight - all while doing his impersonation of the UFC fighter.

McGregor has been a big supporter of the charity event recently, donating a massive €10,000 (£8,600) to the cause earlier this month.

After Timothy announced that the target had gone from €1,000 (£860) to €5,000 (£4,300), the 32-year-old fighter tweeted him, saying: "Haha yes! Love this Stevo and Paddy B! Put me down for €10,000!

"Great stuff lads, for a great cause! Good luck in the boxing match."

But that's just loose change for McGregor, who recently came top of Forbes' highest paid athlete list - earning a staggering $180 million (£127m) in the last year.

He beat the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lewis Hamilton, having made a huge £106m for selling whiskey brand Proper 12, the Mirror reports.

On top of that he made a whopping £15m ($22m) in the ring, making him the first Irishman to top the elite list.

It goes without saying that this is a far cry from where McGregor found himself 14 years ago, when he was cashing weekly benefit checks of $235 and deep in debt.

Growing up in the Dublin suburb of Crumlin, McGregor's first love was football - he was an avid supporter of Manchester United.

However, it was after an altercation with some school bullies that the 32-year-old's path changed course, and he began training aged just 12 in order to toughen up.

"Things like this happened a few times," he told MMA TV in 2015.

"So I thought, 'F*** this, I am going to go and train.'

"So if someone says something, then they're going to know about it - that's how I started."

And it's taken him all the way to the top.
