McGregor: I’ll break Mayweather inside four rounds
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.
White believes McGregor-Mayweather will happen
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.
Rousey bonded with Diesel over online gaming
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.
Rousey: I’ll finish Nunes in first round
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.
McGregor appears on Diaz interview
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.
Rosario Dawson interview
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.
All Hands On Deck performance
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.
Orlando Bloom interview
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.
Ellen DeGeneres appearance
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. She gives away free Beats headphones to the Conan audience.
Rosario Dawson interview
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.
Robert Patrick interview

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.
Rebecca Romjin interview
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.
Sofia Vergara interview
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.
Evangeline Lilly interview
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.
I was obsessed with the shape of their breasts. I would draw them. I would try to trace them. I was fanatical about the perfection of their tear drop shape of their perfect breasts.
Pete Holmes interview
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?
The Birds Of St. Marks performance
Jackson Browne appears as a musical guest on Conan and performs The Birds Of St. Mark, a track from his latest album, Standing in the Breach.
Bill Burr interview
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.
Jennifer Aniston interview
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!”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt interview
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”.
