Conor McGregor is scheduled to fight Jose Aldo on December 12th in Las Vegas, and everybody has an opinion on how the fight is going to go.
October 24th will be a huge night for Norman Parke, Cathal Pendred, Patrick Holohan, and Aisling Daly. All four fighters face stern tests at the UFC’s Fight Night card, which takes place at Dublin’s 3 Arena.
Parke will face-off against tough Iranian, Reza Madadi, in a lightweight contest. Pendred battles undefeated Tom Breese at welterweight. “The Hooligan” steps in with the once-beaten Louis Smolka in a flyweight contest. And the first lady of Irish MMA, Aisling Daly, faces Brazil’s Erika Almeida in a battle of strawweights.
