Conor McGregor says the run-in with the Miami Heat mascot was all in good fun. 

Conor McGregor is one of the most famous fighters on the planet. It has been almost 2 years since he fight in the UFC Octagon but he remains active in the headlines. McGregor is known almost more so for his antics outside the Octagon than he has been known for his fights inside the Octagon in recent years. McGregor has found himself in trouble with the law on many occasions. Now he has found himself in some hot water again.

Over the weekend McGregor was in attendance at a Miami Heat basketball game. He was brought onto the court where he was involved in an altercation with the Heat mascot. McGregor was seen punching the mascot and reportedly sending him to the hospital with injuries. Now McGregor is denying that he acted out of malice, and in fact, this is all part of the show.

Conor McGregor claims to have been acting at the Miami Heat game

McGregor was a guest on the Live with Kelly and Mark show where he spoke about his new Netflix documentary and the altercation with the mascot. He played it off and said that it was all part of a skit.

“You know, that was part of the skit, that was all a skit,” he said. “We were backstage, all was well, it was just part of the show. It blew up. You know I recently made my acting debut and I’m not not a bad actor.”

McGregor joked about his acting skills. During his hiatus from the UFC McGregor did have a lead acting role in a new film. He is starring in the remake of the cult classic Roadhouse due out at a later time. Now the former UFC champ is chalking the whole incident up to good fun and even laughed it off.
