Video: Conor McGregor Burger King commercial just put his ‘Notorious’ kid through college

Burgermeister Meisterburger ain’t got shit on “Notorious.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who will remain that way until the first strike is thrown at UFC 223, continues to make a shitload of money without throwing a single punch.

His latest endorsement deal comes from his flame-broiled friends at Burger King, following in Floyd Mayweather’s footsteps and walking the walk with the creepiest fast food mascot ever created.

There was something very jump-the-shark’ish about watching “Notorious” bite down on that chicken sandwich, but like he said, it puts his kid through college. That said, I doubt he needed the money after this windfall.

If and when McGregor returns to mixed marital arts (MMA) remains to be seen. Once Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov settle their lightweight differences next month in Brooklyn, the trash-talking Irishman will not longer be able to parade around town with his belt.

Perhaps that will be enough motivation to come back to UFC?
