Conor McGregor shares the hilarious video clip
During the episode featuring Tyson, a few unsuspecting fans were asked for their thoughts on the boxing icon, not knowing that they’ll soon be confronted by him. One such fan happened to be an Irish who was asked the following question:
“Who do you think would win in a fight between Conor McGregor and Mike Tyson?”
The fan went on to lavish praise on both the fighters and the fan ultimately sided with McGregor, as they’re both Irish. The fan stated:
“That’s a difficult question. I don’t know. They both have the aggression. I’m gonna have to go with Conor because he’s Irish, though.”
It was quite a hilarious development as when the fan was busy addressing a potential McGregor-Tyson fight, Tyson sneaked up beside her. The interviewer then asked the fan to give her prediction for the McGregor-Tyson matchup to Tyson in person. The woman was noticeably startled and burst out laughing upon seeing Tyson next to her.
The @cutmanireland Instagram account reposted a video clip of the comedy segment featuring the Irish fan and Tyson. McGregor subsequently took to his official Instagram account and reposted the clip to his Instagram Stories. Furthermore, expressing his gratitude towards the Irish fan, McGregor wrote:
“That’s how you back your own!”
