Conor McGregor always manages to make headlines, for better or worse. After his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, Conor McGregor continues to go on a downward spiral.
The Notorious One was present for MTV’s Video Music Awards and somehow he managed to make a scene as he got into a brief altercation with Machine Gun Kelly and almost came to blows with him.
That wasn’t the only embarassing thing he did. McGregor threw the ceremonial first pitch ahead of the Chicago Cubs Tuesday night game against the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field.
The pitch was so off the mark that it almost hit a fan sitting in the front row. Fans and UFC stars alike relentlessly trolled McGregor’s horrible pitch. Some even compared it to 50 Cent’s terrible first pitch botch ahead of a New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirate game at Citi Field in 2014.
Conor McGregor took to his Instagram and went on a scathing rant against those who compared his first pitch to 50 Cent.
The audacity to compare mine with this p*ss! Picture to picture alone buries this. Mine, bar the accuracy, was the most powerful and fastest first pitch of any of these other athletes/ artist over the years. No comparison. Smoke them up and down that Forbes I do. Get Messi over. Smoked. Cris. Smoked. Federer. Doubled. All time Most Power! Put me in the Wrigley hall of fame for that rocket launch. Beside some of that nice red brick. Mahogany Oak Frame. Wimbledon lines in the grass. The great Wrigley Field reminds me of the grounds on my land in Ireland. Impeccable
Conor McGregor will continue to make headlines no matter what he does and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
