Pic: Conor McGregor pays homage to iconic Muhammad Ali photo

The UFC superstar has recreated one of the Greatest's most iconic photographs.

Conor McGregor posted a photo on Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning featuring himself, his training partner Artem Lobov and, for lack of a better phrase, fat stacks.

The SBG duo take centre stage in the photograph, donning suits inside a bank vault with a big ol' pile of money.

The photograph is of course a reference to a classic Sports Illustrated cover featuring boxing legend, and the king of trash talk, Muhammad Ali.

Time will tell whether McGregor can follow Ali's lead and become the champion of the world. Tell Aldo, he's coming.
