The official event poster for January’s ‘UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver’ in Boston was unveiled last Friday it’s top drawer.
On Friday, the Ultimate Fighting Championship unveiled the official event poster for UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver. Oh boy, it’s hard not to be excited for this one already.
The event will take place on January 18th at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. With a win over Siver, a surging McGregor could earn a shot at UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo later on in 2015. However, Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson may have something to say about that as they stand ahead of “Notorious” in the Featherweight rankings and Chad Mendes is still hanging around after two losses to the Champion Aldo. No one brings in a crowd and has them talking like McGregor though!
The current UFC Fight Night 59 fight card can be seen below. It includes fellow Irish men Patrick Holohan and Cathal Pendred, who left an interesting message upon the announcement that former WWE CM Punk has signed for the UFC; “I wouldn’t be the first Irishman to stomp
@CMPunk.” They will all be gunning to fight Punk and get the huge pay day, whether Pendred is a big enough name depends on his continued rise through the division.
