Conor McGregor may be the most divisive, attention-demanding personality in the UFC today, but that doesn't mean he's above poking fun at himself (or allowing others to) from time to time. We've seen the lightweight champion read mean tweets about himself and we've even seen SNL take a shot at him in the recent past, but McGregor always seems to roll with the punches, pardon the horrific pun.

But what happened when impressionist master Tom Lawlor dressed up as McGregor at the UFC 196 weigh ins?

Thanks to this video, we now know.

Per usual, McGregor seems to take the jest in stride, and seemed happy for the crowd pop Lawlor managed to get for jacking his style. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all, and a persona as big as McGregor's is sure to earn some imitators. I mean, how else do you explain the recent rash of fans making the unforgivable decision to get his signature gorilla tattoo on their own chests?

While you're at it, check out Lawlor's greatest weigh-ins from over the years:

The "Filthy" one may have moved onto the world of professional wrestling, but his status as MMA's greatest weigh-in impressario remains unquestionable.
