Singing sensation was as a guest host at the famous American show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. He mentioned McGregor in his conversation with the host and also performed the ‘Bili Strut’ while doing the impression.

The 27-year -old star jokingly mocked the Americans over Irish stereotypes. Horan said, “You guys are also very misinformed about our traditions. Let’s take St Patrick’s Day. First of all, it’s not called ‘Patty’s Day’ like the inside of a burger. On St Patrick’s Day in Ireland, you just go to mass and light a candle with your granny. Here in America, you just sing U2 songs all day and then puke green beer on your Uber driver. Even your sports teams have it wrong.”

Showing a picture of the University of Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish mascot: a leprechaun. Horan continued, “He looks more like if Abraham Lincoln had s*x with a garden gnome. If you want fighting Irish, Conor McGregor, that’s fighting Irish and he’ll pull your heart right through your a**.”

The Irish singer later did the McGregor’s ‘Bili Strut’ expression and said, “Who the f**k is, Abe Lincoln, anyway? He’ll do absolutely nothing! I’ll fight him any day. That’s my Conor McGregor impression, thank you. Also available for weddings and bar mitzvahs, depending on the price, obviously”

Horan’s impression was so good that he even got a retweet from the former two division champion himself, who is currently out because of injury.
