He may have several titles under his belt, but Irish fighter Conor McGregor can now add 'sex symbol' to his repertoire.

Rolling Stone magazine has included him on a list of 25 hottest sex symbols of 2015.

Among others who made the cut are comedian Amy Schumer, TV host John Oliver and actress Brie Larson.

On 27-year-old McGregor, the publication says: "After his record-setting 13 second KO of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, there's no denying that the brash, brawling Irishman is currently the biggest star in mixed martial arts".

"And now, he's got Aldo's Featherweight Championship, too".

It adds that while his accomplishments inside the Octagon are impressive, "his flashy excesses outside of it make him legendary".

"Dropping half-a-million dollars on a pair of cars? Check. Debating the merits of purchasing a chimp as a mascot? Yep".

"If you're sick of him now, you're s*!t outta luck; King Conor's reign is just beginning", it says.

McGregor also looks set to fight to the UFC Lightweight Championship whilst retaining the Featherweight belt.
