UFC fighter Conor McGregor joined Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on the AT&T Stadium field before the team's win over the Jacksonvile Jaguars on Sunday. Not only did he join Jones while meeting and greeting players, but also he helped pump up the team in the pregame huddle and threw a football around.

McGregor made this public appearence fresh off of his controversial loss last weekend to Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229, which resulted in Nurmagomedov retaining the UFC lightweight title. Both fighters were suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission because of a post-fight brawl that broke out.

En route to the Cowboys' 40-7 victory, Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott both celebrated touchdown scores with McGregor's famous "strut."
