Conor McGregor was mobbed by fans as he left a restaurant and needed a security team to help free his car from the adoring masses.

The Notorious gave an incredible insight into his superstar lifestyle as he dined out to celebrate the 4th of July in America.

The 32-year-old is preparing for his eagerly anticipated rematch with Dustin Poirier on Saturday but partook in celebrations Stateside.

On his way out to his car, he showed the scale of the crowd that awaited him which left even him temporarily stuck for words as he gasped “Jesus Christ.”

Ever the showman, he then treated the crowd to some shadowboxing before hopping in his luxury sports car and trying to maneuver his way out.

That process took several minutes as there were fans all around him.

Eventually, he was able to slowly make his out onto the road thanks to an extensive security team coordinating his exit although several persistent fans ran alongside him for as long as they could.

In the restaurant itself the Dubliner treated himself to a six-course meal, starting with oysters, jumbo prawns and several other luxury ingredients.

The second dish was lobster bisque laced with sherry, followed by an Asian pear salad.

Then came the main course: a “Surf and Turf” dish, containing filet mignon and lobster tail.

The mouthwatering main came with seasonal vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes.

The meal was topped off with a dessert as the fighter chose between creme brulee, dark chocolate cake and banana bread pudding.

Clearly feeling confident about where his weight is at less than a week out from Friday’s weigh-in, he might need to burn those calories off in the gym as he prepares to fight Poirier for a third time.

His first scrap with The Diamond at UFC 178 in September 2014 ended in a dominant first-round KO.

But he was stunned in the second of their January contest where his foe finished him this time after battering his lead leg with calf kicks.
