No one was staring at Conor McGregor’s face during his face-off weigh-in with Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor ultimately didn’t win his fight against Floyd Mayweather, but that’s not important right now.

What demands your utmost attention is this footage of the face-off weigh-in between the two fighters. We can’t put our finger on why, exactly, we think it will captivate you. Perhaps we sense McGregor is just One To Watch, possessed of that innate charisma that screams star staying power. Or perhaps it’s his meticulously crafted tattoos. Or his hypnotic accent.

Yes — it’s definitely his hypnotic accent.

His fluting accent makes every turn of phrase into beautiful lyrical poetry, and we’re mesmerized by it. We think you’ll be mesmerized by it, too.

Is it just us, or is his accent absolutely marvelous?
