Conor McGregor told to stick to 'no more Mr Nice Guy' vow as he signs autographs for adoring fans ahead of UFC 264

CONOR MCGREGOR showed his class by stopping and signing autographs for his legion of fans in California.

The Notorious has made The Golden State his home away from home as he gears up for his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

Dozens of the UFC poster boy's fans recently managed to locate the Irishman's Santa Monica training base, turning up with memorabilia in the hopes of having their items signed.

And the former two-division champion duly obliged, patiently signing autograph after autograph.

McGregor's personal photographer captured the impromptu signing session, which the Dubliner shared to his Instagram page.

He wrote: "To my fans, my team, I love you."

McGregor, 32, is two weeks away from his blockbuster rubber match with Poirier, which will headline UFC 264 in Las Vegas.

Mystic Mac suffered a brutal second-round KO defeat to The Diamond in their January rematch in Abu Dhabi.


McGregor vowed to go back to his trash-talking ways two weeks after the fight, a promise former UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen hopes the former lightweight king will stick to.

In a video on his YouTube Channel, Sonnen said: "I was given this advice when I was a kid.

"One of my coaches told me to write on my mirror every day that I was the champion.

"I never did it, I never one day wrote it down and taped it on the mirror and it's not because I didn't have paper or a pen or scotch tape, it's because I didn't believe it.

"I would have felt silly, what if somebody saw? I didn't believe it.

"I only bring that to you because later in my life when I started to do it, I did believe it, and I believe that Conor McGregor went through the same thing.

"When everybody thought he was out there being an entertainer or trying to get in Jose Aldo's head, I don't believe that's what was motivating.

"I believe that Conor was like me, where he started to make these claims and how saying these things out loud effected him inside and also how it effected his training and his discipline and work ethic."

McGregor is relishing his Sin City series decider with Poirier and plans to get back into the win column in spectacular fashion.

He told Fox Sports: "All the marbles are on the line.

"I'm here training very, very hard. I'm about to go for my second session of the day. I'm in great condition already.

"I beat him in the original bout [in 2014]. I lost in the rematch.

"And then we've got trilogy, I've got a few little adjustments to make.

"I feel very, very confident. I'm very focused and driven.

"And I'll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10th."
