WATCH: Conor McGregor Breaks “Agreement” PUTS HANDS On Floyd Mayweather At Final Presser
The final stop in the world tour saw Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor land in London, England, at the iconic Wembley Arena, and the UFC champion returned to his best by delivering a rousing speech.
Following the batshit press conferences in Los Angeles, California, Toronto, Canada then Brooklyn, New York, the pair of fighters embarked on the last bit of media obligation ahead of fight week by heading to the U.K.
And following the disappointing event in New York, McGregor produced a typically brilliant performances as he continued to roast Floyd Mayweather while blasting Showtime executive and general manager Stephen Espinoza.
As well as Mayweather and Espinoza, the 40-year-old’s ‘juice head’ body guards where also subject to a verbal assault.
What’s more, while strutting the boxing ring, McGregor strolled past Mayweather and rubbed his head.
More than a few fans have been wondered why UFC president Dana White is in the middle of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather during the stare offs. After all, the fight isn’t being promoted by the UFC – it’s under the umbrella of Mayweather Promotions and McGregor’s new promotional vehicle.
When asked about it, White had a simple response – he was asked to keep McGregor reined in by Mayweather’s elusive advisor, Al Haymon :
“Al Haymon gave me specific directions,. To make sure that Conor McGregor does not touch Floyd Mayweather. I’ll be in the middle.”
Well, as usual Conor isn’t interested in playing by the rules.
