Fight fans hanging in there for Conor McGregor

We’re getting used to it at this stage.

Following Conor McGregor’s UFC career means getting used to some very late nights (or early mornings).

We had hoped a move to New York might mean a slightly earlier start time, but no - just as late as ever.


It’s not that we’re not pumped to see McGregor take on Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title, we are - really.

But it’s late.

We. Are. So. Feckin. Tired.

Nearly there now everyone, we can do this.
