This Dude Wrote a Career Retrospective Song for Conor McGregor on the Ukelele

It sure has been a long journey for Conor McGregor.

No matter your opinion on the guy, if you delete his trash talk and brash in-your-face swagger, all you’re left with is a ridiculous list of accomplishments. Sure, he has a fire-spittin’ Lambo and pants that look like they’d be hanging in the back of Bret Hart’s closet, but he’s also knocked out two UFC champions. He’s gone from a plumber, to the richest MMA fighter ever. Oh, and he’s somehow strutted his way into a fight with the best boxer of our generation. This is the stuff folk songs are written about, which is exactly what Mick Konstantin ended up doing.

The life and times of Conor McGregor on the ukelele is probably something you never knew you needed until now, but it just works. Such a polarizing figure is bound to garner fan tattoos, artwork, bootleg t-shirts and, yes, songs written and performed in front of the tricolor. We need more MMA fighter-based songs like this. Someone please write a prog-rock metal epic about Jon Jones. Until then, Konstantin’s lyrics to “There’s Only One Conor McGregor” and a full performance of his song is down below.

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 60G’S BABY AND A CONTRACT TO SIGN

LEAVING HIS OLD LIFE AND THE SOCIAL WELFARE BEHIND

AFTER 2 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 COS THE IRISH ARE COMING

YOU CAN TALK ALL YOU WANT, BUY 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 CHEQUES FROM DANA WHITE

AND NOW HIS MONEY, HIS CARS AND HIS CLOTHES HE FLAUNTS

*COS THE DOUBLE CHAMP DOES WHAT THE F**K HE WANTS*

MAYWEATHER, YOUR OLD AND YOUR SMALL

AND THE TRUTH IS THAT YOU’LL DO FECK ALL

COS 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**K 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

COS WHEN ONE OF US GOES, WE ALL GO TO WAR!!
