Conor McGregor might have to start flashing his passport around to make sure everyone knows what’s what.
So Reebok have made another silly mistake. This time the sports clothing giant sent a Conor McGregor jacket with a USA emblem on the sleeve to a disappointed Irishman. Given the litany of errors that the company have made since beginning their deal with the UFC, few fans will be surprised with this latest addition to the list.
As Andrew McGahon puts it in the tweet below “Reebok gonna Reebok”.
A disappointed fan just sent me this. Reebok gonna Reebok. Does every jacket have a big USA on the side of it? pic.twitter.com/vCqqkAKHwJ

At least their latest geographical gaffe stopped just short of being horribly offensive.
They aren’t the only ones who should be feeling warm and rosy in the cheeks this week, however. During Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 79 broadcast, a graphic that appeared on the screen to advertise Conor McGregor’s UFC 194 featherweight title unification fight with Jose Aldo displayed a small American flag beside the Irishman’s picture.
