The eyes chico… they never lie.
The “Notorious” Conor McGregor faces UFC Featherweight Champion Jose “Scarface” Aldo on July 11th. They’ve already held a massive world press tour spanning Brazil, the U.S, Canada, Britain and Ireland; creating hype of biblical proportions months in advance of the fight itself.
The video below now has us in convulsions in anticipation of the epic clash.
It juxtaposes Iron Mike’s scary dominance of boxing in his early years (where he won his first 19 fights by knockout), with McGregor’s whirlwind rise through the UFC ranks, securing him a title shot against the world’s best within just two years of joining the premiere MMA promotion in existence. All the while in the background, Tyson’s haunting speech about the psychology he employed during his heyday depicts the journey that both men have travelled, and in the Irishman’s case, will culminate in the biggest fight of his life in July.
