UFC: Conor McGregor brushes off devastating loss, enjoys NFL game

UFC superstar Conor McGregor isn't wasting time crying over his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas last weekend.

The former double-weight champion was all smiles, when spotted alongside Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, before the clash between 'America's team' and the Jacksonville Jaguars in Texas.

McGregor even had time to give the Cowboys a little pre-match hype-up, jumping into huddle just before kick-off.

The 30-year-old played catch with training partner Dillon Danis and a few other colleagues, as the Irishman and his entourage tour the United States, promoting McGregor's new business venture - Proper 12 Whiskey.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott even paid homage to 'The Notorious' with a post-touchdown celebration.

Danis was at the centre of the post-fight brawl at UFC 229 that saw Nurmagomedov jump out of the cage and attack the New Jersey native, after Danis reportedly mocked the UFC lightweight champion.

Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov have been handed 10-day suspensions by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which is currently investigating the scuffle.

McGregor is expected to escape any further sanctions, but the 'The Eagle' could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines for his attack on Danis.

The Cowboys thrashed the highly fancied Jaguars 30-7.
