In Slovakia, a man opened a bar in honor of his favorite fighter, who is none other than former UFC double champ Conor McGregor.
The name Mikulas Gerenyi probably doesn't ring a bell. This man, who owns a bar in Slovakia, is known for his (slight) resemblance to Conor McGregor. Not only does he look like him, but the man's admiration for the former UFC double champion is also boundless.
It, therefore, comes as no surprise that Mikulas Gerenyi decided to name his bar after his hero: "The Notorious." A name that piqued the curiosity of several media outlets.
The Slovakian man spoke to RT Sport about Conor McGregor, whose whiskey he would like to sell in his establishment, which is a literal shrine honouring the Irishman's accomplishments:
I opened this restaurant six months ago, and I named it in honor of the king of the UFC, Conor "The Notorious" McGregor. The world has never seen [a] fighting style like his, and of course, I am a huge fan of Conor, which is why I named my restaurant after him. My dream is [to] meet him in my restaurant and become a distributor for his whiskey in eastern Europe, in Slovakia my home country, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
A message that reached the Irishman, who reposted Mikulas Gerenyi's interview, although he hasn't said anything about visiting his #1 fan's bar in the future. Regardless, Conor McGregor now knows he has a place to crash in Slovakia.
