Conor McGregor's Reaction When A UFC Fighter Dressed Up As Him For A Weigh-In

Tom Lawlor impersonated Conor McGregor during the weigh-ins for UFC 196 with 'The Notorious' reacting to his hilarious stunt.


Lawlor has been long known for dressing up as MMA legends, entertaining fans with his amusing entrances.

In the past, he's mimicked the likes of Dan Severn and Steven Seagal not to mention McGregor, who took it in good light.

The veteran American fighter walked to the stage and whipped off his t-shirt with Joe Rogan left in hysterics after he caught a glimpse of the sticker tattoo.

Lawlor then made his way to the scale and weighed in with a sticker of McGregor's famous gorilla tattoo on his chest.

McGregor commented: "That's good. He had my tattoos on him like a sticker. Tom Lawlor. Good. He got a pop, he got a pop for it."

Lawlor later faced off with his UFC 196 opponent Corey Anderson in McGregor's traditional stance.

Unfortunately for Lawlor and McGregor, they both lost their UFC 196 fights to Anderson and Nate Diaz, respectively.

But you can add McGregor to the long list of icons Lawlor has impersonated but if he had his own way, he would have walked out in McGregor's Reebok fight kit.

Speaking back in 2015, he revealed: "My plan was to be Conor McGregor at the weigh-ins, so I had asked if I could wear the McGregor fight kit. You know, they give you the Reebok stuff and they said, 'do you have any questions?' I said, 'yes, I have a question. Can I wear McGregor's fight kit?'

"And the way it was met, to me, was like, 'why would you want to do that? Why would anyone want to do that? Don't you want your family to buy these jerseys with your name on them?'

"So right there, it clued me in that perhaps the people that were in charge of some of this stuff weren't as familiar with the product as I would've liked."
