There’s like an entire DAY until the weigh-ins for UFC 189 take place. That’s a day with me sitting around, re-watching old fights (and in theory doing my other real job). Do you know how hard that is for me? I have the attention span of a gnat. I came across this little UFC 189 Conor McGregor piece. I figured I’d share it with everyone because why not? Do you have anything to lose by me posting this? Of course you don’t!
Gareth A Davies – really – narrates this deal. It’s a puff piece. It’s your regular old, “Let’s round up everyone in Conor’s life and have them re-tell many of the stories they’ve told before but Conor hasn’t been famous long enough for them to be sick of the attention so this is all still fun.” Hey, can you blame them? When was the last time you were on TV?
I was almost on TV actually (non-UFC press table related TV). They were doing a man on the street thing here in Chicago for a local station. I started pretending to be Irish and English. Not quite UFC 189 Conor McGregor level of hype and special-ness but for a brief second I got to confuse the living daylights out of a producer.
UFC 189 weigh-ins are tonight, we’ll cover them. We have a doink-load of coverage all over the entire site already, if you couldn’t tell, so in theory that should tide you over until Saturday night when at UFC 189 Conor McGregor faces off with Chad Mendes. And other guys also fight but this thing is the Conor show. And this video is literally the Conor show. That’s good segueing.
