Conor McGregor Lights Up Dallas Cowboys' Match And Players Celebrate With The ‘Billi Strut'

Conor McGregor's spirit hasn't been dampened by his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

In fact, the 30-year-old Irishman seemed like his chirpy self when he went to watch the Dallas Cowboys take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Notorious was on the field to throw the ball (albeit not very well) and mingled with Cowboys players.

The Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown in the match and even celebrated with McGregor's 'Billi Strut.'

"I don't know about the McGregor strut," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told USA Today. "But I can do the Dak strut."

The Cowboys beat the Jaguars 40-7.

Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor in the fourth round to retain his UFC Lightweight Championship and extended his undefeated record to 27 wins.

Following the heated aftermath of the fight, though, the Nevada Athletic Commission has temporarily suspended both fighters.

New footage from the event chronicled the Russian fighter's arrival at the T-Mobile Arena to his pre-fight preparation and the post-match reaction from inside his locker room.

Since the fight, the Eagle has fired out a warning shot to the UFC if they chose to punish Zubaira Tukhugov for punching Conor McGregor.

McGregor, on the other hand, is ready for another showdown with the reigning Lightweight Championship after UFC president Dana White confirmed that the Irishman had asked for a rematch with Khabib.

Should White book a rematch between the two?

Let us know in the comments.
