McGregor’s fight can be applied to your sales team! It’s mind-blowing!
The match between Conor McGregor & Jose Aldo last week can be considered one of the biggest showdown in UFC history! It was Brazil Vs. Ireland.
Ultimate Fighting Champion (UFC) is the largest mixed martial arts promotion company in the world featuring most of the top-ranked fighters in the sport. Fighters are mostly skilled in grappling, striking and wrestling.
A little bit of what went down on the most coveted fight of the year after Pacquio vs. Mayfeather.
One year ago McGregor was due to a fight match with Aldo for the same title, but due to a rib injury a week before the match, Aldo pulled out and was replaced Chad Mendes for the interim Featherweight belt, with Aldo possibly returning to the scene only on Oct. 2015
After winning the fight, there were verbal exchanges between McGregor & Aldo. What really ticked McGregor was when Aldo called McGregor’s interim title a “Toy Belt” thus fueling McGregor. On August 2015, UFC President Dana White has locked down the date and venue for the highly anticipated fight to finally name one of them the UFC Featherweight champion of the world!
