UFC champ Conor McGregor has been on the receiving end of a satirical stab on US comedy show Saturday Night Live, complete with a very ropey Irish accent.

In a skit called Where'd Your Money Go? a number of high-earning sports stars participate in a fake game show where they've to explain their poor financial decisions and how their cash disappeared.

Of course McGregor's penchant for the fast life and bling made him an obvious target for a comedic take down, alongside American golfer John Daly and NFL star Rob Gronkowski.

Dressed in a mink overcoat, the McGregor character is introduced by the host as a man who "wears $10,000 dollar suits and has just bought a $350,000 Rolls Royce".

Alex Moffat who plays the Irish champ replies in his best Darby O'Gill brogue, "Charles, I'm not going broke, so you can take your patronising tone and shove it up your arse."

Of course no Irish cliché is left unturned in the (mildly funny) skit.

There's references to McGregor's membership of the IRA  (as opposed to the other IRA - a US savings scheme for retirement) and of course he's called "an angry little leprechaun".

Try saying that to his face!
