Conor McGregor joined the short list of all-time worst ceremonial first pitches in history on Tuesday night.
The former two-division UFC champion took the mound at historic Wrigley Field in Chicago prior to the Cubs’ 9-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins. “The Notorious,” dressed to the nines, loosened up a bit before heaving his pitch to the third base side, nearly drilling a fan sitting in the front row.

Any time fighters get the opportunity to take a shot at the biggest star in the history of mixed martial arts, they do so. This was no exception as some of McGregor’s colleagues, rivals, and past opponents took their shots.

Many said McGregor’s first pitch was worse than 50 Cent’s:
