A Las Vegas resident has produced a new video titled "24 Hours as Conor McGregor in Ireland."

Matt Oliveira is flight attendant based at McCarran International Airport. He also makes video for his YouTube channel Molives TV.

Oliveira started a series called "Mystery Flights" about 6 months ago where he goes to the airport with no pre-arranged destination and asks his followers on Instagram to vote what country he goes to.

His most recent Mystery Flight took him to Dublin, Ireland, where he filmed the Conor McGregor video.

The video shows Oliveira getting his hair cut like McGregor, dressing like McGregor, eating like McGregor and finally training like McGregor with a run from Ireland to Las Vegas.

Oliveira says the reason that he films his adventures and shares them with the world is because he was born with cystic fibrosis and he wants to show people that you can't let anything hold you back.
