Conor McGregor reacts to brawl between Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul
Yesterday was the first time Floyd Mayweather and his upcoming opponent Logan Paul went face to face. However, coming out of their first press conference it was not Logan Paul who was the star of the show, it was in fact his brother, Jake.
Jake stole the show when he got into a brawl with the former boxing world champion when he stole his hat.
See the clip of the brawl below.

As you can see in the clip, Paul steals Mayweather's hat and then is swarmed on by Mayweather and his team of security guards.
Although Paul was laughing as he was being chased by Mayweather it seems that he came out of the brawl with a cut on his eye and a damaged tooth.

In the post, McGregor was constantly expressing his embarrassment for Mayweather.
McGregor said "Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was canceled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter."
