Conor McGregor's 'Billionaire Strut' is a celebration in FIFA 23
| Last updated
Conor McGregor's 'Billionaire Strut' has been added to FIFA 23 as a new celebration.
A slew of new, trending, real-life celebrations are introduced to the game every year and the latest release from EA Sports - which coincidentally will be their last under its current game - is no different.
The game was made available worldwide on 30 September and fans have quickly picked up McGregor's presence in the game.
While the UFC phenomenon isn't a new player - and you can only use him in EA Sports UFC's 4 game - his signature walk is and it promises to deliver a whole lot of rage-quitting.
On Twitter, @LempireMMA have shared a video of Neymar doing his best impression of McGregor in the game.
When you score, press L1 or LB and hold the right stick down to go all 'Notorious' on your opponent as arms swing out and about in unbelievably cocky fashion.

Sergio Ramos and Dele Alli have both used the strut as a celebration on the pitch after scoring over the years.
Cristiano Ronaldo's 'SIUUU' celebration has been captured perfectly, while new celebrations this year include Christian Pulisic's 'Eye of the Tiger,' Diogo Jota's 'Gamer' and the 'Low Five and Flex'.

Beyond that, players are able to bring their personality to life and activating sounds such as klaxons, alarms and even the audio of horse going "neigh" when they score a goal.
It does a feel a little contradictory, however, given EA removed two celebrations from the game for being "toxic" when FIFA 21 was released.
They listened to community and decided to get rid of both the 'Shush' and 'A-OK'. In recent years, other changes made in terms of celebrations including reducing the amount of replays and giving players the option to turn off their opponent's celebration.
