McGregor is a mastermind when it comes to mind games. The Irishman is known to dig deep into his opponents’ past and find anything that he can use to get inside their heads. Nobody is safe from the “Notorious” one’s psychological warfare.

Back in 2017, when McGregor was preparing to fight Floyd Mayweather, he sported the No. 23 Golden State Warriors jersey. This incident enraged Draymond Green, who currently wears the jersey. However, when Green told McGregor to take it off, McGregor fired back and said that he was representing former Warrior’s point guard, C.J. Watson.

Why did Conor McGregor wear C.J. Watson’s jersey?

No, he is not a huge fan of Watson. According to the Judiciary Report, Mayweather read some text messages between Watson and his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris. The fuming Mayweather then beat up his former girlfriend in front of their kids and threatened to kill Watson and Harris.

During a Reddit AMA session, the former Golden State Warriors player was asked to state his opinion on McGregor wearing his jersey to get under Mayweather’s skin.

“Stupid because I had nothing to do with the situation,” Watson said.

The 36-year-old Watson played 10 seasons in NBA and is now playing overseas in Turkey. It seems like he is not too thrilled about his entanglement in Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor.
