There is no escape

A trailer from episode one of Conor ‘The Ubiquitous’ McGregor’s new series, The Notorious, which starts on Monday at 10pm on RTÉ Two.

Melanie O’Connor writes:

“In episode 1, we find McGregor recovering from a knee injury after his win against Max Holloway last August. As he battles through gruelling physio and training, he must get back to his peak for his first fight in 10 months against Brazilian Diego Brandao. On home soil, McGregor must prove his worth as a sold-out O2 Arena awaits his arrival. With exclusive access, we see his team training in Iceland, his girlfriend and family adjusting to fame and the rigorous preparation required for a bout in the UFC.”

Thanks Melanie

[Catherine Noone TD] said: “I have written to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport seeking his views on allowing this vile so-called sport to be given a platform and an audience here and fully believe that this event should not be licensed…”
The senator’s comments come ahead of [Conor] McGregor and fellow Irish fighter Cathal Pendred preparing for their respective bouts in Boston early on Monday morning.
A McGregor win could see a potential title fight in Dublin, possibly in Croke Park in front of 80,000 fans.

Ultimate FIGHT!

Fair play though, in fairness.

I know you don’t normally talk about MMA [Mixed Martial Arts] but I was wondering if you could spread the word about Dubliner Conor McGregor (above right) who is fighting Marcus Brimage (left) in the UFC tomorrow night in Sweden.
Conor is a legend: a 12-2 record (11 wins by KO), held two world titles in two separate men’s divisions and has the gift of the gab (check out his twitter account @TheNotoriousMMA for that). MTV also did a documentary about him recently.
He is fighting at around 6pm and it can be watched for free on the UFC’s Facebook page. Please show your support for Irish MMA as it continues to rise at a rapid rate and for sure we will see more Irish fighters join Conor in the ranks of the UFC.


Cage fighting?

We’re literally on the fence.
