Conor McGregor showed he's got more than just octagon game on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden as he flashed his flair for hoops.

The Dubliner headlines UFC 205 at the iconic New York arena on Saturday night when he bids for a second world title against lightweight titlist Eddie Alvarez.

After a vigorous public workout at the Garden on Wednesday morning, McGregor was handed a basketball and a chance to show his skills at the home of the NBA's New York Knicks.

He proceeded to not quite drain his effort but with the help of a bounce off the rim, got the job done much to the delight of the watching crowd.
