WATCH: Conor McGregor Addresses Race Issue With Bizarre Speech

WATCH: Conor McGregor Addresses Race Issue With Bizarre Speech

Following the batshit press conferences in Los Angeles, California, then Toronto, Canada, the third stop saw Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor verbally joust in Brooklyn, New York City.

And true to form, it was bloody bizarre.

While it didn't have the same amount of electricity as the Toronto crowd, the presser in Brooklyn did produce a response from McGregor regarding race issues.

The Irishman was subject to allegations of racism following his remarks to Mayweather. McGregor referred to his opponent as 'boy' while taunting him by saying 'dance for me.'

Though McGregor has previously called some of his past UFC opponents 'boy' while using the same 'dance for me' taunt against Nate Diaz.

During his monologue, McGregor took the time to address the alleged racism with a bizarre speech claiming to be 'half black.'

In the clip, Conor said: "A lot of the media seem to be saying I'm against black people. That's absolutely fucking ridiculous. Do they not know I'm half black? Yeah! I'm half black from the belly button down!"

Dustin Poirier, TJ Dillashaw and Nate Diaz all got the 'boy' treatment.

Three down, one to go. Next stop - The iconic Wembley Stadium in London, England.
