If there's one thing Conor McGregor has an indisputable talent for, it's promotion.
By now, there's a good chance you'll have either seen or heard about Mick Konstatin's song and how it's become viral sensation. He's been on talk shows, radio shows, and now he's being flown out to Las Vegas for the fight next week.
In a wide-ranging interview with Ariel Helwani, McGregor confirmed that Konstantin and a friend of his will be flown out for the fight. "I had my people reach out to the guy and we’re booking him a flight, him plus one. I’m going to bring him over to the fight and get him tickets and put him up in a hotel, and I’ll meet him after the fight. It’s one hell of a song," said McGregor.
The talk starts around the ten-minute mark.
McGregor said that the gesture was in thanks to Konstantin's support, however there's no word yet if the singer-songwriter will be playing him out into the ring. Meanwhile, tickets for the event are now hitting $10,000 or higher with a live gate of around $60 million so far - with Donald Trump invited, but unlikely to attend.
