Conor McGregor branded 'cringiest' person in world after shocking baseball pitch and for 'trying to fight Megan Fox'October 4, 2021
FORMER two-division UFC champion Henry Cejudo reckons 'there's nobody cringier' than Conor McGregor 'right now'.
Despite being on the sidelines with a broken leg, the UFC's poster boy continues to be in the headlines.
The Irishman made waves at the MTV Video Music Awards last month following a kerfuffle with rapper Machine Gun Kelly.
Two weeks later, the MMA superstar was back in the headlines for his horrendous pitch before the Chicago Cubs' clash with the Minnesota Twins.
And Cejudo reckons The Notorious is doing everything he can to remain relevant during his time out.
During a recent episode of his podcast with The Schmo, he said: "There's nobody else cringier right now at this point or thirstier than Conor 'The McTapper' McGregor.
"Did you see him throw out the first pitch? I mean, 50 Cent would laugh at the pitch that he threw at the Cubs game.
"I mean this guy is trying to fight Megan Fox for crying out loud. He's out here calling Alexander Volkanovski, he wants to fight him.

"I mean, he's just out of his mind."
The former men's fly and bantamweight champion added: "Conor McGregor, get your s**t together."
McGregor, 33, shattered his left tibia and fibula in his UFC 264 trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in July.
The Dubliner is making a faster than expected recovery and believes he's already capable of kicking.
He told YouTuber Adam's Apple: "I feel like I could kick right now.
There's nobody else cringier right now at this point or thirstier
“I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’ve just got to listen to the doctors, listen to the people that are guiding me.
"That’s what I’ve done so far, I’ve committed myself to the work and I’m back on the feet.
"It’s so good to be back on the feet.”
He added: "I was upset for a little while. It has not been easy, you know what I mean?
"There's been a few ups and downs on this [journey].
"It's probably one of the wildest things that's ever happened to me in my life. Know what I mean?
"It's not been full smooth sailing, but I've got through. I've had my family and my close team by my side.
"And we're getting there. Still a long away [to go]."
