When Mick Konstantin wrote the song about Conor McGregor that’s been taking over the internet his one real hope was that the Notorious might see it.

Mick’s video has been viewed over three million times on Facebook alone since being uploaded on August 9.

It didn’t take long before McGregor had seen it, with a video showing him watching it on Instagram just a few hours later. And his gesture to Mick shows the 29-year-old was clearly very taken by it.

There's Only One Conor McGregor – Mick Konstantin

Just throwing up the yearly tune, and for the month that's in it, thought I'd do one on Conor McGregor, and the fight coming up against Mayweather. Tried to get as many of his famous lines in as possible, so hope ye like it!And if anyone out there knows Conor personally, feel free to pass the song on to him, sound! Lyrics:A kid from Dublin with more than a dreamHe knew one day he'd be the king of the UFCWith a group of fighting Irish not to be pushed overNot here to take part they were here to take overFrom the start John Kavanagh by his sideWhoever thought they'd be known worldwideAfter 60g's baby and a contract to signLeaving his old life and the social welfare behindAfter 2 years came the featherweight champion of the worldConor said he'd make him look like a little girlIt only took ten seconds to show his talk wasn't cheapAs he connected with the left, and put ALDO TO SLEEP!There's only one Conor McGregor, and there's no fighter betterAnd he's going to knock out Floyd MayweatherSo Floyd watch out cos the Irish are comingYou can talk all you want, buy you'll do nothin!The lightweight belt was next in storeTo do what no other fighter had ever done beforeBecame the first same time double champ in historyAnd took the chance to apologize to absolutely nobodyCame from working on a building siteTo getting million dollar pay cheques from Dana WhiteAnd now his money, his cars and his clothes he flauntsCos the double champ does what the f**k he wantsMayweather, your old and your smallAnd the truth is that you'll do feck allCos 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 willCan get inside your head like he was Dr. PhilAnd if you call him out, have a good reason whyOr he'll turn around and say who the f**k is that guyAnd on the 26th of August we're taking over VegasThe Irish invasion you can't mistake usSinging songs day and night til our voices are soreCos when one of us goes, we all go to war!!

The Irishman has revealed that he’s flying Mick and a friend out to Las Vegas for the Floyd Mayweather fight as a thanks.

“It was one hell of a song. It’s a very catchy song. We actually reached out to the guy, I had my people reach out to the guy and we are booking him a flight, him plus one,” McGregor told MMA Fighting.

“I want to bring him over to the fight and get him tickets and put him in a hotel. I’ll meet him maybe after the fight but it’s one hell of a song.

“I’m gonna bring him in just as a thank you for the support. I mean what a song, it’s the journey in music form. Myself and my team, we’ve enjoyed it very much and we’re going to fly the guy out. Him and whoever, him and a friend.”

The song took Mick, who had a viral hit last year with a song about the Euros, a couple of days to come up with – a lot of which was spent going through YouTube to check there weren’t any big McGregor quotes that had been missed.

“I couldn’t believe it, literally couldn’t believe it. That was kind of the dream when I wrote it at the start,” Mick told MacLife Productions about his reaction after seeing McGregor listen to his song.

Mick was clearly a big fan before but his love for McGregor must surely now be through the roof.
