The Internet has responded to Conor McGregor trying to throw a football

He spouted a phenomenal amount of rhetoric in the lead up to his UFC 229 rendezvous with undefeated and now undisputed Lightweight UFC titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov, but it seems Irish sensation Conor McGregor was unable to put his money where his mouth was in practice.

The Notorious eventually went down in the fourth round to the Russian grappler after sustaining some heavy knocks in the opening three.

Many pundits had Khabib as winning the opening three rounds with a decision looming in his favour should the fight have gone the distance.

McGregor, ever humble in defeat had this to say:

But rather than hiding away with a slow recovery, McGregor looks to be ready to move on to the next piece of business. Today he took part in the Cowboy’s game in the NFL.

One of the players had his own attempt at the trademark Conor McGregor billy walk.

But fans are now freaking out about McGregor’s attempt at throwing a ball.

NFL wasn’t exactly a sport that McGregor grew up following in Ireland, but the Internet has held nothing back with their thoughts on his skills.

Twitter responded to the moment with plenty of jokes.
