This may or may not be completely made up footage. There is a 99% chance that ref Robert Byrd did not say any of these hilarious words to Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. Conspiracy theorists are going to conspiracy theory and at times during the McGregor and Mayweather; it did look like Byrd had a quick hook on much of what McGregor tried to do offensively.
Would McGregor fared better with a different third man in the ring? Probably not but after listening to these completely made-up pre-fight instructions from referee Robert Byrd, maybe the UFC and Team Mac have a guess for appeal.
As bias as it gets, let your blood boil MMA fans at this shocking new fictional audio.
