Fox Sports had a funny glitch mid-press conference and it involved a bathrobe. pic.twitter.com/d9U0IfjnPx— Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) July 11, 2017
This is awkward.
If you were watching the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather press conference on FS2, you got an added bonus of a technical difficulty.
As Conor McGregor was at the podium starting to talk trash to Mayweather, the video went out. The press conference video was replaced with the similar television color bars for a few seconds. Then the broadcast shifted to a video but it wasn’t the one fans were expecting. No one expected it, even analysts Karyn Bryant and Kenny Florian were caught off guard. Bryant was in a bathrobe and immediately took it off once she found out they were accidentally on the air earlier than expected. Florian hid his phone and adjusted his collar.
It didn’t take long for both of them to be ready for the cameras even if the video eventually went back to the press conference. Props to being professional under pressure.
