Conor McGregor appeared at the famous Wrigley Stadium recently as he was honored with the chance to throw the first pitch ahead of a Chicago Cubs Baseball game. However, his throw became an instant meme for the fans as it was way off target. American rapper Action Bronson recently shared his take on the same.

Bronson appeared in an interview with Ariel Helwani at the MMA Hour show. He revealed that he believes the whole saga was staged. When Helwani brought up the instance that 50-cent had a similar kind of bad throw like ‘The Notorious’, Bronson said both shouldn’t be compared, since McGregor is a top-level professional athlete.

That’s fu*king staged,” said Bronson. “You don’t expect 50 to know how to throw a ball. He sold drugs all his life. Conor McGregor is a professional athlete. He probably throws tennis balls in training,” he added.

“What would 50-cent be doing with a baseball. He was selling crack,” Bronson said further. Those comments took McGregor’s attention and the Irish fighter responded in his usual demeanor.

Conor McGregor justifies his bad pitch

McGregor has revealed that he was happy with his pitch, especially considering the fact that he is still recovering from the legal break and he couldn’t use it as he would have liked to. He now responded to Bronson’s claims, saying he was actually playing a game of squash.

Two little slap heads. I bounced the ball off that back red brick wall like it was a game of squash I was playing. You’d bobble the thing home from halfway out. Nobody even reaches the wall, and I marked it. I was going in the back way. Behind them, ambush. Mac thru the back,” wrote McGregor in a recent Twitter post.

McGregor is currently on the road to recovery as he is still healing from the freaky leg break he suffered at UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier. While he is on course with his treatment, fans shouldn’t expect him to be back before the latter half of 2022. But, for now, he is enjoying his battles on the Internet yet again ever since his dismal pitch at the Baseball game.
