Warning: Video may contain some strong or potentially offensive language

UFC champion McGregor, who fights Nate Diaz on Saturday night at UFC 196, made a fan's dream come true when he visited his apartment in Los Angeles.

While cruising around LA in his Rolls Royce McGregor spotted a cardboard cutout of himself with an Irish flag draped below it on the balcony of the fan's home.

The 27-year-old UFC star shouted to the fan: "I'm going to come up to you tomorrow," before adding: "they have a cardboard cut-out of me in the fight stance and an Irish flag draped over the balcony, the f****** thing's crazy."

The next day, he came back and paid a visit with girlfriend Dee Devlin.
