Returning to the Octagon at #UFC202 to avenge his sole loss in the promotion at the hands of #NateDiaz, Conor McGregor strutted into the Octagon a la #VinceMcMahon. Made famous in the #WWE through the sporting mogul's cocky “Power Walk” entrance, the Irishman has adopted the act for himself. Newly dubbed the “Billionaire Strut," the walk has become an iconic staple in “Mystic Mac’s” Octagon entrances.
However, UFC 202 wasn’t the first time we’ve seen Conor McGregor perform the boastful strut. It’s long been in his arsenal.
Vince McMahon is a figure McGregor has previously praised and held a lot of respect for, so it’s no surprise that the Irishman would seek to replicate him, especially with his business acumen.
With Conor McGregor now a global star, the act has gone viral. Oscar Wilde once said imitation is the greatest form of flattery, so let’s take a look at some of the celebs who have performed their own version of the “Billionaire Strut.”
