Looks like Conor McGregor has just gained yet another hugely famous fan, except that this one just gave him probably THE best compliment to ever get.

The legendary Sylvester Stallone was asked by US reporters who he was putting his bets on for the upcoming McGregor V Mayweather fight on August 26th.

Any Syl is up for the Irish lad allll the way.

"He's the real life Rocky", Stallone said, adding that "I'm always up for the underdog."

Stallone did say though that he lives in a fantasy land, but we've got a good feeling that our own Real Life Rocky can knock it out of the park.
