A popular man

Everyone wanted a piece of ‘The Notorious’.

Conor McGregor may not have been on the bill for UFC 200 but that didn’t do anything to affect his popularity backstage at the T-Mobile Arena.

The reigning UFC featherweight champion has been in Las Vegas for a few weeks now, as he puts the finishing touches on his training camp for UFC 202, when he will meet Nate Diaz at welterweight for the second time in five months.

McGregor spent last weekend attending the UFC events in the fight capital of the world and was present at The Ultimate Fighter 23 finale, as well as UFC 200 the next night.

And a film crew followed the Irishman around for the duration of the weekend for McGregor’s ‘The Mac Life‘ project.

The cameraman captured him showering UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk with praise after she defeated Claudia Gadelha last Friday night, as well as his brief encounters with Stipe Miocic, Justin Timberlake and Jim Norton backstage at the new T-Mobile Arena.

The man shakes some amount of hands on a daily basis.
