ESPN & SC6 Had The Bleep Button Ready For Conor McGregor Because He Cursed Up A Storm (VIDEOS)

Here are some of the highlights of McGregor cursing, and Michael Smith and Jemele Hill reacting to it.

They were very vague on the details, there were speeches and all that, I see guys get up, full speeches, I was like [bleeped], I couldn’t hear when they were speaking. There was some guy with gray hair and a big afro! [presumably Don King; Smith and Hill lose it at this point.] So I just went up and had fun and embraced it.”
McGregor then went on to insult Mayweather:
“His little head and my big fist, they don’t go together, so he will be done for,” McGregor says. Smith then says “He’s hard to hit, he’s one of the best defensive fighters in history; how are you going to land a punch?” McGregor reponds “I don’t care! I don’t [bleeping] care!”
Later on, McGregor dropped a “I don’t [bleeping] care what people think!” while relaying what Mayweather said to him about “Next we’ll do a MMA fight,” and then went on to drop a bunch of further words that got bleeped:
