Conor McGregor sends Miami Heat mascot to hospital staged attack UFC

A staged altercation between former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor, and Miami Heat mascot, Burnie, reportedly resulted in an emergency room visit for the latter, who appears to have been punched in the head during the mid-court promotional shoot.

McGregor, a former two-division champion at both the featherweight and lightweight limit during his gold laden tenure under the banner of the UFC, appeared courtside during the NBA Finals last night at the Keseya Arena in Miami, Florida.

Making his way onto the court for a staged altercation with the Miami Heat mascot, Burnie, McGregor, who was promoting TIDL Plant Powered Cryotherapy, punched the mascot off his feet, before then firing a ground strike which appeared to land on the latter’s face. And to add insult to injury, Conor McGregor, who turns 35-years-old next month, sprayed the recovery spray into the mascot’s face.
