NO CHILL!! Conor McGregor Crosses The Line With Showtime Executive AGAIN In London
During the first press conference for their MayMac world tour on in LA, Conor McGregor managed to get a hold of a microphone and respond to Floyd Mayweather while he was speaking but quickly, the mic was cut and his responses were muted.
Speaking afterward, McGregor said that he thought it was intentionally cut because the producers didn’t want him chiming in when Mayweather was speaking.
The Irishman was none too pleased about it:
“Yeah, they took the mic off,” McGregor told reporters. “Look, fu*k them. Fu*k Showtime. Fu*k them all. They can do nothing after August 26. They can try and do all these tricks all they want. August 26, this man will be unconscious. He’s too small, he’s too frail. That’s it. What more can I say?”
Later, Showtime issued an official statement denying any involvement in McGregor’s mic being cut. Showtime Sports vice president Stephen Espinoza issued the following statement:
“At no point did Showtime or event productions cut any microphones intentionally during Tuesday’s kickoff event in Los Angeles. The point of this world tour is to let these superstars interact with the fans and with each other. Cutting their mics would go against our goal of delivering these fighters to the masses and letting their charismatic and entertaining personalities take center stage.”
After the Brooklyn leg of the tour, Espinoza admitted his patience was running thin with McGregor.

Well, it’s obvious that McGregor wasn’t listening or just doesn’t care:
Mayweather told Stephen Espinoza (who McGregor was cussing all week) to point at the "easy work" he didn't even do it 😂😂😂😂😂
