UFC great Conor McGregor tossed the first pitch at the Cubs game on Tuesday and it really could not have gone much worse.
Somewhere out there, 50 Cent has the biggest smile on his face. That’s because someone else has recorded a first pitch that’s in the worst-ever conversation. This time, Conor McGregor is the one who might be a little embarrassed right now.
The UFC legend tossed out the first pitch at Wrigley Field ahead of the Cubs showdown with the Twins and it didn’t even come close to crossing the plate. You’re not going to believe how bad things went for the Irishman.
Conor McGregor’s first pitch at Wrigley Field will be shown for years to come
While McGregor was hoping to throw even better than he looked in his stylish suit, the opposite proved to be the case. The lefty’s delivery sailed over everyone and didn’t even come close to going down the middle. This was the best he could do here?
Something tells us that McGregor didn’t take the time to get some practice throws in. If so, he needs to fire whoever helped him out with his throwing mechanics immediately. With McGregor’s cocky antics, you know this has got to be a bit of an ego blow for him. At the same time, maybe he doesn’t care at all.
At the end of the day, he’s one of the more popular MMA fighters the world has ever seen. He even tried his luck at boxing with Floyd Mayweather, and while he suffered the loss, he still provided the world with plenty of entertainment.
Should McGregor get a shot at redemption and make his way to another baseball field soon, we can only hope he records a better performance than what we saw on Tuesday. Goodness, it was awful.
