Watch: Conor McGregor spices things up as he stars in new Burger King ad

IRISH fighter Conor McGregor has been showing off his acting skills in a new ad for Burger King.

Not that it’s too taxing a role for the UFC star, as he plays himself in the commercial.

Plugging the fast food chain’s new sandwich, McGregor appears alongside the company’s eponymous mascot.

“I’m f****** fired up to try this new Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich,” announces the Dubliner.

Fans may be wondering why McGregor has appeared in the commercial, as he’s hardly short a few bob.

As he says himself in the ad: “Thanks for all the trash talk guys, you just put Conor Jr through college.”

However the decision to plug chicken could be a tongue-in-cheek dig at UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has repeatedly dubbed McGregor a chicken for so far refusing to fight him.

However that could be about to change, with McGregor teasing on Twitter that some “big news” is on the way when he posted an image from the ad.
