Conor McGregor Kicks Fire In Awesome New UFC 196 Promo (VIDEO)
UFC Feathwerweight champion Conor McGregor will take on Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 in what’s being billed as a superfight, considering it’s champion vs. champion (although only the Lightweight title held by dos Anjos is on the line). In building up the hype surrounding this fight, UFC is going all-out with its promo videos. Case in point, this awesome new clip featuring McGregor in near-total darkness.
In the promo, titled “Lights Out”, McGregor extinguishes a series of candles with different strikes. “I am calm, cold ruthless, and ready to take out the body that’s in front of me,” McGregor says, extinguishing fire with his kicks. It’s a pretty badass promo, and plays into the larger than life persona McGregor has cultivated for himself as the biggest star in all of mixed martial arts at the moment. The big fight atmosphere surrounding this fight has me super stoked for March 5. Watch the promo video below:
