McGregor talks to O’Brien, with O’Brien referencing his appearance on the show two year’s before, where McGregor said he wanted to fight Mayweather for the first time.
COB: Conor, you first predicted this fight two years ago on this show. Let’s take a look…What if you were in the ring with Floyd Mayweather?
CMG: If your asking if I’d like to fight Floyd, who wouldn’t like to dance around the ring for $180 million? If we were to get it on, I would most certainly dismantle him.
In the present day:
CMG: There will be no dancing in there. I’m going to go straight forward, and put him away…inside four rounds!…
Responding to Mayweather saying he is going to go down on his face or his back:
I’m going down…down in the history books.
During an appearance on Conan, White tells O’Brien that he believes the fight between McGregor and Mayweather will go ahead.
I do think it’s gonna happen. I think it’s going to be a tough deal, because obviously [there are] a lot of egos involved in this deal and a lot of people, so that always makes it tougher. On the flip side, there’s so much money involved. I just don’t see how it doesn’t happen…It would be boxing. No kicking, no elbows, just straight-up boxing, in a boxing ring with gloves and the whole deal. A lot of things make this fight intriguing but the reality is this — anybody who has ever seen Floyd Mayweather, he’s this big (motioning at his small size). Conor McGregor is huge. He’s 27 years old, he’s in the prime of his career. Floyd is 40. Floyd always had problems with southpaws, Conor is a southpaw and Conor hits hard. When Conor hits people, they go. Floyd’s definitely not knocking him out, that’s for sure. I’m not saying that Conor would win this boxing match but it sure makes it interesting.
In an interview with O’Brien on Conan, Rousey talks about how she became friends with Diesel over online gaming.
I’ve been playing Pokemon for 18 years, and that’s actually how me and Vin Diesel became friends…every night after filming we’d set up computers and like the other side of the room, and like, ‘Ok we’re going to go to this dungeon!’…I like talking to people online who have no idea who I am.
On Conan, Rousey responds to Nunes prediction that Nunes would beat her in the first round.
Well she kind of has to say that because everyone knows she gasses out in the second so she has to tell herself that,” Rousey said. “What else is she going to tell herself? She has to sleep at night somehow.
During Diaz’s appearance on Conan, O’Brien shows him comments by McGregor.
I just hope he’s not up on that stage wearing that stupid black t-shirt he’s never out of. The boy’s been wearing that same damn t-shirt for the last 20 years or something. I’m taking this contest very, very seriously. I’ve flown in specific body types to replicate Nate’s skinny, tall frame. The boy won the lotto the last time. He knows it, I know it. Well, August 20 I get my revenge and I look forward to it.
The truth came out, and the truth will come out on the 20th, when it will come out again.
Dawson appears on Conan and talks about how her mom once trained her to use pepper spray by using it on her, and that New Yorkers aren’t as tough as they used to be.
Now people think it’s so safe in New York that they are walking around with ear-buds at four o’clock in the morning and I kind of feel like hitting them…I kind of feel like robbing them.
Tinashe performs All Hands On Deck during Conan promoting her album Aquarius.
In an interview on Conan, Cryer describes how, when working on an episode of Two and a Half Men, they had to figure out how to show Kutcher naked:
We we’re working this over in the writer’s room, and then Ashton pipes in ‘oh, well I’ve got a huge prosthetic penis in my trailer’. We all had that awkward moment of ‘of course you do’.
You too can have one made. I had these web shorts that I did for my company and we were producing these various web shorts, like hidden camera things. One of the things that we did was this sketch called ‘Naked Man.’ We had this guy and we had him put on this prosthetic unit, and we sent him to interesting places… I was like, ‘Who knows when you’re gonna need a prosthetic penis?’ So, I kept it and I just happened to have it around.
Bloom appears as a guest on Conan to promote his latest film, The Hobbit. He also talks about having Sir Ian McKellen as a roommate, his experience stripping down in Zulu, and creating a porno film involving elves and Middle Earth.
The truth is there won’t be because J.R. Tolkien has the rights. The estate sold the rights for both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, but nothing else. I was doing press with Evangeline Lilly and Lee Pace recently. We both play elves and we could do an elven spinoff. Get some iphones and some GoPros and annihilate middle earth, Tantric sex, down and dirty. Let’s go with a bit of elven love and violence.
DeGeneres makes a brief appearance on Conan, during the opening monologue. An audience member brags about all the gifts she has received as part of The Ellen DeGeneres Show audience, after which DeGeneres actually shows up on stage with O’Brien.

Dawson returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest film, Top Five. She also talks about making out with Jenny Slate in a New York Times video, and being inspired by James Franco to post “selfies” on social media.
I remember when they asked me to do it, I don’t know if that’s weird to say, but there was another actress they were talking about doing it with. Sure, that would be great. They changed and said it would be Jenny. Awesome, I have never met her before. She is hilarious and awesome and beautiful and cool and smart. So we got there, we said hello, nice to meet you like it was kind of great. It was kind of awesome.
Romjin returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest television show, Skin Wars. She also talks about her experiences with body painting, and challenges O’Brien to try wearing only body paint on one of his shows.
It’s funny, once you’re painted, go with me on this, you don’t feel nude. You actually do feel very covered up. You can tell from people’s body language that they don’t feel naked.

He also shares a near-death experience where he found himself in the middle of a desert after his rear tire blows out. He also talks about his audition for Terminator 2, in which he did an icy and piercing glare.
These are the things you think about when all of a sudden you realize you could have died. I’m out here and you feel like the desert is going to swallow you up and take you in. I take out my knife and starting to cut the tire off the rim. I realize I’m riding the rim right on in.
Vergara returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest jewelry line. She gives O’Brien a bracelet from the collection, to give to his wife. She also talks about her holiday spending habits and watching her boyfriend, Joe Mangianello, prepare for his stripper role in Magic Mike.
It was fun to see him prepare for Magic Mike. It was, you know, a little bit like surprising because I didn’t know who — that he could dance like that. But it was a lot of fun. He did a lot of crazy things in the movie. I think he even had an accident.
Holmes returns as a guest on Conan and talks about his Thanksgiving holiday with his parents in Boston. He also shares his experiences being a celebrity, including signing a Nickelback CD for a fan.
I’m a new vegan. I had to explain that to my working class Boston parents. They didn’t — they didn’t know what that meant. They didn’t even know how to say it. My father was like “Peter, you’re a vegan!” Why is that? Vegan, dad! Vegan, like an alien species. What does that mean? What does it mean? I go, it just means you don’t eat animal products. And he goes so what do you eat all day, frigging yogurt?
Lilly returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest film, Ant-Man. She also expresses her admiration for Archie Comics’ Betty and Veronica’s breasts. She also talks about her fetish for ears and proceeds to touch O’Brien and Richter’s lobes.

Aniston returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest film, Horrible Bosses 2. She also talks about a deleted sex scene on the film, as well as some of the sexy jewelry that she chose for her role.
It was an active choice. It was one of those things where they laid out the jewelry and I just gravitated towards that beautiful piece of jewelry. And I put it on. I was like “This is unique and cool.” So then I just kept trying on other bits of her wardrobe. I had kept it. And “great, you chose the [Bleep] ring!”
Burr returns as a guest on Conan and shares his opinions about Thanksgiving and Black Friday. He also talks about his dislike for charity causes in sports and his penchant for Black and White stand-up comedy shows.
I like the holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite because you get to eat in that type of thing. I don’t like black Friday type of stuff. Freaks me out. Makes me sad for Americans, watching them get trampled. Why would you do that to yourself? Why wouldn’t just admit you can’t afford it at regular prices.
Eichner returns as a guest on Conan and talks about his opinions on possible Oscar Award nominees. He also discusses his admiration for Taylor Swift and performs an original song inspired by Swift’s songwriting.
Are there no jokes in outer space? Not a single joke. I wanted a laugh. It’s three, four hours long. And people say, you can’t combine sci-fi and comedy. Five words — “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.? OK?
Gordon-Levitt returns as a guest on Conan and talks about the “Best Performance with a Fake Nose” award he received from a website. He also tries out a bunch of fake noses with O’Brien and watches an old clip of his appearance in Jeopardy.
Again, trying to play a young Bruce Willis and look at yourself in the mirror doing lines, don’t know if I’m selling this. I don’t know if anyone will buy the “you grow up to be Bruce Willis”. Then once I put on that face and put in the contact lenses. It was a nose and lips, eyebrows, ears. All subtle but a lot of stuff and then I’m like “OK, yeah, this isn’t me anymore”.

Well, it started off on a tree. There was a tree in front of my grandmother’s house. I would shoot over the tree branch. That was my hoop. The grandfather cut down the tree so I ended up nailing a milk carton to a telephone pole. It’s round, you can’t shoot off the back bound. It helped me learn how to shoot over the rim better.
Dennings returns as a guest on Conan to promote the latest season of 2 Broke Girls. She also talks about her idyllic childhood in the woods and being a somber goth as a child.
It kind of was if you want to break it down. We lived on top of a hill in a place called Bryn Mawr, which is now more built up. It was in the woods on a hill, there were deer. There were no other neighbors. There was weather.
Harris appears as a guest on Conan to promote his latest film, Gone Girl and his book, Choose Your Own Autobiography. He also talks about his sex scenes on film and on stage, and shares some childhood memories, including kissing two girls at the same time.

Cenac appears as a guest on Conan to promote his upcoming comedy tour. He also talks about having a show at the same time as Dave Chappelle’s show, and meeting O’Brien at a luxury car show.

Carvey returns as a guest on Conan and gives a variety of celebrity impersonations, including Liam Neeson, as well as Presidents Bush, Clinton, and Obama. He also improvises a song about the flugelbone in Neil Young’s voice, and talks about being friends with President George W. Bush.
He’s my buddy. It’s very interesting going on — by the way, this is an ISIS-free zone. If you are ISIS, please exit. It’s interesting to think of the dichotomy. Because Obama clearly was rough on him when we had to go back. He just wasn’t very enthusiastic. He’s up there going, we’re going to — we’re going to head back with our strategic partners, coalition, forces.
Milioti appears as a guest on Conan to promote her television show, A to Z. She also talks about almost getting run over by a bus with her face on it, and being bullied n school for her unique haircut and unusual retorts.
I had gone to a summer camp and the cool girl at summer camp had a buzz cut. Then I went home to New Jersey and I wanted one and my mom took me to a salon and they were like, she wants to what? And they did it. And I showed up to middle school like that. What’s up, guys? Ready to hang. And they were not nice.
Perry appears as a guest on Conan and talks about some difficult moments during his time off from Aerosmith, including selling his rare 1959 Les Paul, which ends up in the hands of his good friend, Slash.
I knew it was getting in the way of our friendship. I said “I will never ask you about it again, man. If you ever want to sell it back, just give me a call, whatever but I won’t bug you about it”. And at my 50th birthday, Cheap Trick was playing. They came in to play. And I sat in with them and in the middle of the set my guitar tech walks up and hands me this guitar. And it was the guitar and Slash gave it to me.
Wilson appears as a guest on Conan to promote her television show, Marry Me. She also talks about working with her producer-husband and inviting Oprah to major events in her life.

Like, also we want all our music, all our music, on the phone. You want all your music on the phone? No, I’m sorry. I misspoke. We want all the music. Every song ever on our phone now.

They’re going “Dr. Jon”, Dr. Jon.” One lady, she goes — I just want to see if you’re here. She’s screaming for me. She had a thing that hung down like this. One day I said, what happened to your finger? She’s like, what happened to your face?
Hoult returns as a guest on Conan to promote his latest movie, Young Ones. He also talks about the extremely dangerous stunts he had to do on the film, exchanging pranks with X-Men co-star James McAvoy, and engaging in a full-on BB gun war with him.

Luddington returns as a guest on Conan to talk about her overly critical father, her horrific film audition, and the poor British reception of her Lifetime movie, William and Kate.
We don’t have Lifetime in England, so they don’t understand that Lifetime movies are cheesy and a guilty pleasure. In England, I was screwed with the reviews before it came out and they were like “What?” -- including my family.
