Last weekend, John Kavanagh revealed he has not spoken to Conor McGregor since UFC 229. However, the Irish UFC star has been busy with other endeavours as he continues to promote his new whiskey. Last night, he visited NFL franchise Dallas Cowboys during their victory over Jacksonville Jaguars.
McGregor was a guest of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at the AT&T Stadium. He engaged in the pre-match team talk and was also given the opportunity to throw the football. However, it wasn't much of a throw.

McGregor responded to the widespread slagging by pointing out he wasn't exactly dressed for the occasion.
In terms of his future in the UFC, McGregor's next move is unknown but coach Kavanagh did tell ESPN that he sees another fight soon.
I can't imagine Conor drifting off into the sunset off the back of a loss. He is the most competitive human being I have ever been lucky enough to meet. He has got the other side of his world, they're in great shape. He has conquered them. If I know Conor at all, he has to fight again.
