Irish singer Mick Konstantin pens charming ballad for Conor McGregor

If you ever wanted to know what would happen if Jack Johnson were a Conor McGregor fanatic, wonder no more.

On Wednesday, Irish singer Mick Konstantin shared a cheery song entitled “There’s Only One Conor McGregor”, which is dedicated to the UFC lightweight champion and his rise from blue collar Dubliner to combat sports superstar to possibly becoming the first man to defeat Floyd Mayweather.

The ukulele-backed tune also touches upon McGregor’s conquests of Jose Aldo and Eddie Alvarez, his enormous wealth, and his classic diss of Jeremy Stephens.

See the full lyrics below and sing along if you’re so inclined:

A kid from Dublin with more than a dream
He knew one day he'd be the king of the UFC
With a group of fighting Irish not to be pushed over
Not here to take part they were here to take over

From the start John Kavanagh by his side
Whoever thought they'd be known worldwide
After 60 Gs baby and a contract to sign
Leaving his old life and the social welfare behind

After two years came the featherweight champion of the world
Conor said he'd make him look like a little girl
It only took ten seconds to show his talk wasn't cheap
As he connected with the left, and put Aldo to sleep

There's only one Conor McGregor, and there's no fighter better
And he's going to knock out Floyd Mayweather
So Floyd watch out ‘cause the Irish are coming
You can talk all you want, but you'll do nothin’

The lightweight belt was next in store
To do what no other fighter had ever done before
Became the first same time double champ in history
And took the chance to apologize to absolutely nobody

Came from working on a building site
To getting million dollar pay checks from Dana White
And now his money, his cars, and his clothes he flaunts
‘Cause the double champ does what the f*ck he wants

Mayweather, you’re old and you’re small
And the truth is that you'll do feck all
‘Cause precision beats power and timing beats speed
Why have you got a school bag Floyd? You can't even read


Well he dresses to kill, buys Lamborghinis at will
Can get inside your head like he was Dr. Phil
And if you call him out, have a good reason why
Or he'll turn around and say who the f*ck is that guy?

And on the 26th of August we're taking over Vegas
The Irish invasion you can't mistake us
Singing songs day and night ‘til our voices are sore
‘Cause when one of us goes, we all go to war
