Conor McGregor is hilariously bad at throwing an American football

Jacksonville Jaguars v Dallas Cowboys

Conor McGregor suffered what may well go down as the biggest loss of his career two weeks ago at UFC 229. 

Pitted against the unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov in a scrap for the UFC Lightweight title, McGregor came into the fight his usual confident self but was left tapping to a rear-naked choke by Khabib after getting dominated for four rounds inside the octagon. 

That was humiliating for the Irishman who was predicting a glorious return to MMA, and there was more humiliation this weekend as McGregor stepped out at JerryWorld while watching the Dallas Cowboys take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

McGregor was on the field at AT&T Stadium as a guest of Cowboys owner and supremo Jerry Jones, as they beat the Jaguars in a 40-7 pasting that no one saw coming. 

The Notorious One gave a speech before the game and was invited onto the field to toss around the pigskin a couple of times. This was a bad idea as it was revealed to the world that McGregor has absolutely no idea how to throw a football.

Check out the video below to see McGregor's awful, no good, very bad throwing technique. 

He hasn't got his fingers on the laces, he's holding the middle of the ball like it's a loaf of bread from his local bakery and he's throwing off his back foot like a high school quarterback facing a pass rush for the first time in his life. 

As you can guess by the caption The Checkdown chose to go with the tweet, Twitter was absolutely ripping into the Irish fighter.

We thought we'd collate some of the best responses and roasts. 

McGregor saw that everyone had taken to roasting him for his form so responded after the game on Instagram, making sure to get in another shoutout for his whiskey brand and claiming that the only reason he was throwing like that was to make sure nothing happened to his suit. 

Seeing as the Cowboys actually won, and did the McGregor strut to celebrate after big plays and touchdowns, we're going to let McGregor off. Maybe he's just a way better motivational speaker than a passer, so Dak Prescott doesn't need to worry about his job being stolen.
