ON SATURDAY, CONOR McGregor will take on Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny McGregor is entertaining. And he’s given us so much.

1. When he bared his arse for ESPN Magazine and no one knew where to look

They soon got over themselves though:

2. Every single time he has worn these glasses

And of course, this philosophy on wearing all white:

5. When, despite his riches, he was spotted using a flip phone

There are two things I really like to do and that’s whoop ass and look good. I’m doing one of them right now and on Saturday night, I’m doing the other.

It’s currently up for auction on eBay – and Funky Christmas Jumpers tell us that the man himself has placed a bid on it.

10. When he posted a selfie with a young fan who had forgotten her phone

Ah wouldye look.

11. When he stopped to hug this very excited NYPD officer

Besides my kids being born, this is one of the best days of my life.

12. And of course, when he ‘retired’ for all of five minutes and caused absolute chaos

Back in April, he tweeted this and sent the MMA world into a frenzy:
