See Why ‘Everyone Is Talking About Conor McGregor’

UFC Fight Night 26 is a solid card to say the least and one rife with exciting fighters. Of the combatants to be featured this Saturday night in “Beantown”, one of them has received a considerable amount of notoriety since entering the UFC, back in April of this year.

25-year-old featherweight Conor McGregor is an exciting Irish fighter with some promise, who’s 1 & 0 in the UFC and coming off of a beautiful TKO finish of Marcus Briamage. Beyond that, he’s on a 9 fight (professional) winning streak.

He is exceedingly confident in his abilities and his record acts as proof of his skills. In his 11 victories (13 & 2 overall), “Notorious” has finished 10 of them by either KO or TKO, with the other win coming by way of submission. Of his 11 wins, not one of them made into the third round.

In lead-up to his fight in Boston this Saturday night and as a reminder of what all the hypes’ been about, the UFC has released McGregor’s “big show” debut fight against Marcus “The Bama Beast” Brimage.

As Kenny Florian says of “Notorious’s” performance in the fight, “this is why everyone’s been talking about Conor McGregor.”

    These lighter divisions are getting to be one of my favorites and they seem to be getting better every year.

      RF, I have noted that and corrected the copy to read, simply, that Connor is Irish. I have removed the "UK" reference.

          RF, I totally understand and get not only the message, but the point, I promise I will never make the mistake again and as I said to Falcon, you are well-right to have made note of it and to be proud of, what is, a great Irish fighter.

          I think he's going to do well in the UFC and I suspect if he wins a couple of more fights, that the brass will give him a title shot. As such, he should march forth proudly under the tri-color of the Irish flag.

          Again, I'm sorry and I promise it won't happen again.

          Cheers,

          Brian

            I accept all forgiveness that ever comes my way; it's like money, I never turn it down.

            In terms of you running away, my Irish heritage would probably have me out partying the night before and I'd probably opt to over sleep any scheduled conflict in favor of a good solid Irish breakfast and a pint.

            PS – don't forget that your French heritage used to run a huge chunk of the world and they never backed-down. :-)

            PSS – French heritage is one of the best parts of Canada.

    Conor did look good against Brimage, but Holloway is a few inches taller than McGregor, and his reach about the same, sot will be interesting to see if he will still have the same confidence in his striking.
