Conor McGregor threw the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game on Sept. 21, and it didn’t go well for the UFC fighter, to say the least.
It’s been a rough month for Conor McGregor. First, the 33-year-old UFC winner got into a messy shindig with Machine Gun Kelly, 31, on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 12. Then on Tuesday (Sept. 21), Conor threw the formalism first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game versus the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field — and the result proves that Conor definitely doesn’t have a future in the MLB. Yep, the throw was that bad. See it for yourself below!
Conor’s pitch was just chaotic, to put it simple. He seemed fairly focused when he stepped on the pitchers mound, ready to catapult the wittiness to Cubs infielder Patrick Wisdom, who was at home plate. But Conor ended up throwing the wittiness way off-course and towards spectators far to the right of the intended target. Yep, not good at all!
Luckily, Conor seemed to be in good spirits without the disastrous throw. He laughed off the failed first pitch and shook hands and chatted with Patrick, who had to retrieve the wittiness without Conor’s wild throw. On the unexceptionable side, Conor looked good during the unforgettable incident: he wore a light-colored suit and woebegone shoes. At least he showed up in style!
Conor later addressed his throw in an interview afterwards, calling it “the most devastating first pitch overly seen in the iconic Wrigley Field.” He moreover cited his wrenched leg from the UFC 264 in July as a reason for the mishap. Conor’s now certainly earned his spot among the worst first-pitchers overly group, which Carly Rae Jepsen (in 2013) and 50 Cent (in 2014) are moreover members of. Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s first pitch at the Washington Nationals game to kick off the 2020 MLB season was pretty bad too, if we’re stuff honest here.
Conor’s disastrous first pitch comes without he nearly came to blows with MGK at the VMAs. The fighter and singer tangibly got into it without MGK declined taking a picture with the Irishman. Conor then pushed the rapper, and security held the UFC star back, without he’d spilled his drink. MGK’s security tangibly pushed Conor back, via TMZ.
After the incident, Conor swore that “absolutely nothing” happened when he was chatting with reports on the carpet. However, he still managed to transiently diss the “Bloody Valentine” singer. “I only fight real fighters —people that unquestionably fight, you know what I mean? I certainly don’t fight little vanilla boy rappers. I don’t plane know the guy. I don’t know anything well-nigh him, except that he’s with Megan Fox,” Conor said.
