Conor McGregor shocked fans in Chicago when he came out for their annual St Patrick’s Day parade.
The UFC star joined the city’s mayor and walked alongside Taoiseach Leo Varadkar as he waved to parade watchers.

This is so god damn awesome.
Conor McGregor rode the plumber’s float in Chicago today, not forgetting his roots. Conor was a plumber in Ireland just six or seven years ago, living off welfare. Now he’s sitting atop a whiskey empire.pic.twitter.com/0OGlQGvNKg

Conor had shared a video on his social channels this week, celebrating St Patrick’s Day early with first responders in Chicago.
The Dublin star still donates a percentage of all sales of his whiskey Proper No. Twelve to first responders all across America.
We are out here in Chicago supporting the First Responders with @binnysbev and @properwhiskey!
Thank you guys for the hospitality and for supporting these everyday heroes with me!
