Conor McGregor is out from action following a devastating leg injury he sustained at the main event of UFC 264 against Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier.
Even though Conor is currently in the rehabilitation process, he doesn’t miss any chance to stay in the spotlight. He called out Dustin’s wife right after their fight ended. Then he posted death threats against his family. A few days back he got involved in an altercation with the rapper Machine Gun Kelly at MTV Video Music Awards, MGK denied Conor for a photograph, and Conor threw a drink at him.
This Tuesday, McGregor threw the first pitch at Chicago Clubs game. People thought he would do well in this given he is an exceptional athlete, but he failed terribly as the ball flew over the player’s head, and hit the protective netting over the fans.
Well, Conor is not a baseball player, so he doesn’t have to worry about it, he also provided an update on his leg injury. He said, “I feel like I could kick right now. I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’m just got to listen to the doctors and listen to the people that guided me. That’s what I’ve done so far. I’ve committed myself to the work. I’m back on the feet. It feels so good to be back on the feet.”
“Every MMA fighter that has represented us doing this has looked terrible but this takes the cake,” Justin Gaethje trolls Conor McGregor for his terrible pitch
Former interim lightweight titleholder, Justin Gaethje took notice of this, and he found the whole incident to be insanely hilarious. He commented on this video, and wrote, “I cannot stop laughing at this. Every MMA fighter that has represented us doing this has looked terrible but this takes the cake.”
Gaethje hasn’t fought McGregor yet but is pretty evident that these two don’t like each other. Gaethje is booked to face Michael Chandler, but maybe we’ll see this fight sometime in near future.
