Even though Conor McGregor hasn’t stepped foot inside of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon since November doesn’t mean he isn’t cashing checks and breaking necks. In fact, the Irish superstar has taken his acting skills to an entirely new level for his recent appearance in Marvel’s Iron Fist commercial (which can be seen here).
Luckily, for all of those fight fans wanting more McGregor all the time, the UFC cash cow filmed the entire ordeal in an exclusive behind-the-scenes look. Check out the on-set action in the most recent episode of TheMacLife. From kitchen talk to office walk, McGregor is forced to come face-to-face with onscreen nemesis and ESPN anchor Stan Verrett.
McGregor can stand in front of as many cameras as he wants to, but the 28-year-old will eventually have to step back into the combat realm to defend his brand. Whether McGregor’s next appearance is inside a boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr. or not, “Notorious” will be forced to outdo himself moving forward.
