As UFC 189 draws ever closer, the July 11th Las Vegas card begins to gain even more momentum in the hype department. The self-proclaimed people’s champion and king of trash talking Conor McGregor will get his chance at the coveted UFC featherweight title, but standing in his way is one of the most dominant champions ever, Jose Aldo. The sizzling feud between the two is just weeks away from coming to a head.
Often described as brash, polarizing and outlandish, ‘The Notorious’ landed with a bang in the promotion only two years ago. Taking the 145-pound ranks by storm with his exciting style and entertaining antics, McGeregor has become one of the most well known names in MMA (mixed martial arts) history in a very short timespan.
With his mass of Irish followers in tow, McGregor will face the Brazilian force that is ‘Scarface’, and a win will put the young star on the map as one of the most elite on the globe. Having proven many times that he can back up his smack talk, the SBG (Straight Blast Gym) product will have a whole lot to answer for at UFC 189, the question is has he talked himself in to trouble?
One thing’s for sure, it’s been fun to watch until this point, as illustrated by the UFC video of Top 5 Conor McGregor Notorious Moments. Enjoy it, courtesy of the official youtube account for the UFC.
