Conor McGregor’s Baseball Pitch Leaves Mascot & MMA Twitter Baffled

Conor McGregor may have just thrown out the worst baseball pitch ever recorded on video.

Conor McGregor has been out living life to the fullest during his recovery from a leg injury sustained at UFC 264. Just two days ago, he was out partying it up with Jerry Jones and Post Malone after a Dallas Cowboys football game. He has also been captured attending a Justin Bieber concert and was a presenter at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month. Indeed, neither injury, scandals, nor losses can stunt the megastar’s indomitable zest for life.

Prior to a Tuesday Chicago Cubs home game against the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field, McGregor was once again in the public eye having a grand time when he threw out the first pitch. We now invite you to witness the throw for yourself:

ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto particularly found hilarity in the mascot’s flabbergasted reaction, which was easily readable despite the snuggly placed mask.

McGregor’s lightweight peer Justin Gaethje couldn’t help but feel embarrassed, yet amused, on behalf of the entire MMA community as a result of this bewildering display.

Here are a few other reactions from the MMA community upon watching this shocking footage.

In brighter news for the Irishman, he seems to be getting around fine since undergoing leg surgery and is recovering quite well. The condition of his left arm may need to be examined after the release of this footage, however.

What do you think? Should we cut Conor McGregor a break here? Or does he deserve to be mercilessly roasted for this pitch?
