Conor McGregor signs for UFC

Fight! UK Online -

Yeah, it's legit. Didn't get a chance to update yesterday but heard from good sources that it was just a case of them not being able to say anything.

Wooooooooo! Phone Post
Can't wait to see this guy fight in the UFC in april! He's fuckin brilliant

Nice Phone Post

Great news!!

Good first fight. Should be fireworks. Glad he didn't get a welcome to the UFC, here's Clay Guida for ya. Now I just have to figure out how to see this Fuel bullshit. I bought the package for Sakara-Stann and it's crap so I cancelled it. 

Can't wait to see a proper Irish man in the octagon!!

Five-fight deal apparently, should be good stuff!


Irishman Conor McGregor (12-2) has signed for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and will make his debut at UFC on FUEL 9.  

UFC on Fuel 9 is set for 6th April in Stockholm, Sweden and will be headlined by Alexander Gustafsson vs Gegard Mousasi.

McGregor will face TUF veteran Marcus Brimage (6-1), who is coming off an impression decision victory over Jim Hettes at UFC 152 and was a member of Team Bisping on The Ultimate Fighter.

The SBG Ireland stand out is on a 8 fight win streak, with all 8 victories coming by either knockout of submission, including a brutal KO of Ivan Buchinger in his last outing at 155lbs which caught the attention of many of the mainstream MMA media including UFC announcer Joe Rogan.

With this victory, Conor became the first ever fighter to hold two belts in two different weight classes in Cage Warriors, a feat that the likes of Michael Bisping and Dan Hardy didn’t achieve.

McGregor will be returning to his home of 145lbs for his UFC debut.

We caught up with McGregor’s head coach John Kavanagh

“I’m very happy to confirm that Conor has signed a 5 fight deal with UFC.

“I believe it’s come at the right time in his career and we’re looking to make a serious impact in his debut in April.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their support”

If Pendred beats Grimaud next time out then I don't think he'll be far off either.

I really hope so

Look out for Paddy Holohan too, hes 9-0-1, got screwed on a decision years ago for the draw, the fights online, he clearly won

Now that it's all official, here's a new highlight video of Conor:

Ahh, a real Irishman!

I really hope he does well in the UFC. We need more Euro stars now that big name guys like Bisping, Hardy and even Overeem are getting closer to hanging their gloves.

It's gonna be a big year for SBG, I just keep watching that first gif again and again. Fightuk when are you going to pop by for a training session? Phone Post
