A video of Conor McGregor during the Floyd Mayweather promotion has resurfaced.
The Irishman was at his witty peak and left Mayweather silenced on multiple occasions.
From insulting his ‘peanut head’ to getting the crowd to scream obscenities at the ‘TBE’ the former UFC double-champ was at his very best.
In the fight itself McGregor didn’t do too badly although many felt Mayweather carried him through the bout before stopping him in the tenth.
But really it is the press conferences and promotional tour that will live long in the memory.

Fight fans reacted to the video:
With one saying: ‘This was such a moment for sports and entertainment. Both men did an incredible job selling the fight. The pressers were worth the price of admission itself.’
Another added, ‘I would watch them roast each other again, watched each of them at the time, they travelled all over. Top stuff.’
A third commented, ‘McGregor took a big W on that stage, L inside the ring though.
McGregor is currently coaching on this season’s ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ and will hopefully face-off against Michael Chandler at the end of the year.
