Comedian Adam Hills 'took on' Conor McGregor's coach at the Cat Laughs Comedy Festival

We’ll let you be the judge of this one.

SO, OVER THE weekend, Conor McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, and Australian comedian, Adam Hills, got involved in…ehm… a tussle of sorts.

And depending on who you’ve listened to, you know the whole thing was staged by the pair or you’re convinced the altercation was genuine, which, you know, everyone for themselves and all that.

Anyway if you haven’t yet stumbled across the footage on Twitter, allow us to set the scene for you.

While engaging with the audience at a gig, Adam focussed in on John, who was among the gathered revellers, and asked him what he does for a living.

Replying that he was ‘Conor’s coach’, Adam feigned ignorance, and John clarified, saying: “You know who. Conor McGregor.”

Alright if you’re Conor McGregor’s coach come up here and prove it.

After joining Adam on stage, it was mere seconds before John did, indeed, ‘prove’ it, laying Adam out and proceeding to ‘beat’ him with… ehm… his prosthetic leg.

And if that wasn’t enough, the pair then engaged in a post-show Twitter spat over the conduct of the other.

To which John replied…

To which Adam replied…

And despite the fact the ‘assault’ looked about as authentic as WWF, some Twitter users were convinced it was genuine – something the lads appeared surprised by in the aftermath of the show.

But lest there be any confusion, they’d like you to know that all is well, and everyone can go back about their business.

Grand job. Done and dusted. Sure, we’re laughing.
