Why Conor McGregor Was Wearing Warriors Star CJ Watson Jersey

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor

McGregor's decision of wearing a C.J. Watson shirt has subtext to it: Watson was connected to Mayweather's local manhandle case amongst him and previous accomplice Josie Harris in 2010. Here's a tweet from McGregor from earlier this year: With the trash talk and trolling taken up another notch by two experts of that trade, Green and McGregor, we have to ask: Who's the bigger trash-talker?

Whether Draymond knew McGregor was rocking a Watson jersey and not his own is irrelevant; now we know Green is not a fan of McGregor and will undoubtedly be pulling for Mayweather in the epic showdown slated for August 26.

Connor McGregor was seen wearing a number 23 Warriors jersey, which any National Basketball Association fan would quickly recognize as Green's jersey. "I don't know who the f*** you are".

But defiant Abi is still hoping to publicly support Floyd at his fight against UFC lightweight champion McGregor, 29.

Draymond Green is definitely not on Team McGregor.

The Irishman was not declaring his allegiances to the Golden State Warriors but, rather, was sporting a C.J. Watson jersey for a very specific reason. Police reports from the incident detail Harris alleging Mayweather beat her while holding her phone and yelling, "Are you having sex with C.J".

McGregor is likely wearing the jersey to get under Mayweather's skin, as the boxer was accused in 2010 of assaulting his then-girlfriend after reading affectionate text messages between her and Watson, according to USA Today.

Ladies and gentlemen, Conor McGregor-a man not above referencing domestic violence victims with his clothing choices in order to troll his opponents.
