But the spoof McGregor later appeared somewhat confused about the actual rules of this Saturday’s mega-bout at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.
“Boxing’s just kicking with your hands and your feet,” he claimed, before suggesting he could “still do a couple of kicks, yeah” when Jost pulled him up on the issue.
