Ep 907: McGregor Mayweather World Tour, Racism And Culture, Kyle Walker Cash
Conor McGregor lit up the stage in Toronto, but his performance last night in Brooklyn didn’t go down so well. He found himself on the back foot, having to deny allegations of racism – and his efforts to defend himself have arguably only made things worse.
Eoin and Ken talk about McGregor’s comments, and how they should be judged.
