The 28-year-old features in one of the most freaky ads you will see this year, promoting the Pegasus World Cup Invitational on the January 28. However, the 28-year-old Irishman is keeping busy with side gigs, including one for the $12 Million Pegasus World Cup Invitational, which bills itself as "the world's richest Thoroughbred horse race".

Eyeing a new challenge after dominating the UFC octagon, the outspoken Irish fighter has taken his skills to the racecourse - albeit in a promotional role for the US$12m Pegasus World Cup Invitational to be held in Florida this month. "Horse racing has a big presence in my country and I'm proud to share it with the biggest horse race in the world".

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor was challenged to a fight by former welterweight champion and light-middleweight world champion Ricardo Mayorga.

Question: Do you and your crew go to the horse races together?

"McGregor, I admit that he's has been very good at mixed martial arts, but in boxing he is making mistakes ..."

Of course, his appearance in the short clip for the race at the on January 28 is completely fictional.
