The strut, the entrance, the warm-up, he strikes… all of it!
It’s one thing to be a fan of someone, but to base your entire life around them and strive to even look like them is taking things to another level.
That’s what German MMA fighter, Maurice Adorf, is trying to do, as he appears to be modelling himself on Conor McGregor.
Remarkably, Adorf is 2-0 in his young MMA career, too.
As you can see from the video below, Adorf has the ring walk and the octagon warm-up almost dead-on – he’s certainly been studying.
His tattoos though? Yeah, they’re not so good. And his opponent’s size is… questionable.
McGregor is currently serving a suspension for his role in the post-fight brawl that marred his UFC 229 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Adorf hasn’t quite taken things that far yet, but you wouldn’t rule it out on this evidence, would you?
Even Adorf’s striking is eerily similar to McGregor’s (it helps that he’s a lefty). It will be interesting to see what kind of name he can make for himself keeping this gimmick up, but don’t expect to see McGregor Vs McGregor – ahem, we mean McGregor Vs Adorf – any time soon.
