Conor McGregor clearly enjoys his image as a fire-breathing, trash-talking, money-making MMA machine—but when it comes to his fans, the UFC featherweight champion proves he still has a heart.

On a casual drive in his Rolls-Royce through Las Vegas ahead of his UFC 196 matchup against Nate Diaz, McGregor noticed a cardboard cutout of his likeness outside an apartment balcony. So Conor McGregor did the most Conor McGregor thing he could: Drive up to the guy's place, stop by, and thank the fan for his support.

"Every time I come back, it seems to be a little bit more crazy with the fans," McGregor says. "They treat me as one of their own."

And McGregor, it seems, returns the favor.
