SNL had a skit about Conor McGregor and the accent is all over the place

They say that actions speak louder than words, but in the case of Conor McGregor, his words almost carry as much force as his punches do.

The Dubliner is arguably just as skilled when it comes to trading verbal blows as he his literal blows, and as we all with his dramatic UFC 205 pre-fight press conference, he's still as outspoken as always.

In clear sign of McGregor's increasing fame around the world, Saturday Night Live decided to feature him in a skit that also starred WWE wrestler John Cena. The dual weight UFC champion was played by SNL’s Alex Moffat in a segment called “Where’d Your Money Go?”

Moffat managed to nail McGregor's look, the famous mink coat made another appearance, but he really struggled with his famous Dublin accent and style of speaking.

Points for effort, but the execution may need a little work.
