Conor McGregor Was Clearly Impressed By Sergio Ramos' Impression Of Him Last Night

If there's anyone in the world of sport who has pissed people off more than Conor McGregor it's Real Madrid footballer Sergio Ramos. Both men appear to thrive on controversy and it would be no surprise if there was a certain level of admiration between the pair for their shared ability to get under the skin of their opponents.

Last night, Ramos showed off his level of McGregor fandom by imitating the Dubliner's famous strut after scoring in the UEFA Super Cup against city rivals Atlético Madrid.

The Spanish defender put Real 2-1 up in the traditional curtain-raiser for the European season before setting off to mimic McGregor, much to the amusement of millions watching around the world.

Take a look at the clip below...

The celebration loses a few cool points as Real eventually lost 4-2 to Atlético. However, McGregor retweeted the clip from his official Twitter account so he must have been somewhat impressed.

Plus, after Ramos' well-documented foul on Liverpool's Mo Salah in this year's Champions League final, he probably wouldn't look too out of place in the UFC octagon.
