And McGregor got a little too passionate when praising 9/11 fundraiser Frank Siller and his brother Stephen.
He said: “I’m honoured to be on the show, Frank, I’m honoured to support you. I wanna just stay, your brother Stephen is a f******…”
McGregor quickly covered his mouth and added: “Excuse me. He is a hero, you’re a hero.”
A gasp filled the studio and guests began to laugh at McGregor’s gaffe but soon cheered his donation.
The topic of conversation then turned to what is next for the Irish former UFC champion.
McGregor, 34, has not been in action since July 2021 when he broke his leg in a bout against Dustin Poirier, 34.
But he is set to return later in the year in a comeback fight against Michael Chandler, 36.
The pair coached against each other on reality series The Ultimate Fighter which leads up to a fight between the duo.

McGregor said: “I’m hoping end of summer. We’re working towards late summer.
“I always train, I train everyday but I was filming the show and I’ve got a couple of commitments, this tour as well, this tour around St Patricks week.
“But when this finishes it will be isolation, I’ll go in formulate my camp.”
