We were already pretty pumped for UFC Dublin, but this promo has taken the excitement to another level.
The UFC are well-known for their epic video packages. Their show opening montages featuring The Who’s “Baba O’Riley”, which are only played in the arena and not on television, are damn near works of art. Though this UFC Dublin promo isn’t quite on that sort of level, it certainly does get the hairs standing on the back of the neck.
Okay, it’s a tad cheesy, but who doesn’t like a little cheese in their fight promos?
The last time the UFC came to Dublin Conor McGregor demolished Diego Brandao in devastating fashion, while 4 other home fighters and one adopted Irishman, in Gunnar Nelson, also secured victory.
Ireland’s MMA army will once again be hoping for a clean sweep over the invading forces on October 24th, but it won’t be easy. Each of the six Irish fighters on the bill are set to take on quality opposition, with Cathal Pendred, Paddy Holohan and Joseph Duffy facing particularly stern examinations.
It promises to be another tremendous night of MMA action in the Irish capital.
Here is the full line-up….
Dustin Poirier vs. Joseph Duffy
Stipe Miocic vs. Ben Rothwell
Nicolas Dalby vs. Darren Till
Paddy Holohan vs. Louis Smolka
