Fresh off his UFC 246 victory against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone on Saturday night, Irish fighter Conor McGregor is taking time to send high praise to President Donald Trump.

On Monday, Trump used the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday to pat himself on the back on Twitter, and McGregor had a positive response.

"It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!" Trump tweeted.

To which McGregor replied back to the President, ""Phenomenal President," McGregor wrote. "Quite possibly the USA (goat emoji). Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America"

Fans had sharp reactions in the mentions of McGregor. "These are the words of a man who has been hit in the head many, many, many times," one wrote.

"Have u already forget where you’ve come from? At one point, you were on government cheese. There are people like u here too, Conor. Just bcuz ur income is endless now, doesn’t mean you can be careless w/ your voice & influence. He is a POS, and I’m beginning to think you are too," another wrote.

Another person offered some corrections to McGregor's tweet:

"*feat

*he is nearing the end of his term in office, is the 3rd POTUS in history to be impeached, and his only successful action in office has been to install extremist judges and erode the rule of law

*we respect MLK day, but do not wish one another a "happy" one.

Cheers"

"Not sure how hou did it but you just went higher on the people I like list and you were already in the top two. Congrats on your win my fellow Irishman," someone else chimed in.

Saturday night's event was McGregor's first UFC fight since 2018 and his first UFC win since 2016.

"I spent so much time in my boxing gym," McGregor said after the fight, talking about what he did differently to prepare for this bout. "I went back to my roots, Crumlin Boxing [Club], where I began. And then what happened tonight? I smacked him with my shoulder and I smacked him with my foot."
