Conor McGregor vs. Diego Brandao full fight video preview: UFC Fight Night 46


The powers that be at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) are hoping Conor McGregor can become a big star. The push for him is underway with his headlining today's (Sat., July 19, 2014) UFC Fight Night 46 event against Diego Brandao in Dublin, Ireland, his home country.

McGregor:

"My name McGregor, you know, that's bled on the battlefield. The Celtic spirit is within us. We've been fighting for generations. It's just in our blood. Coming back from this injury after all this talk, all this build up... I wouldn't want to fight me. I'm doing what my ancestors were doing in the modern day era. I'm doing what I was put here to do. I'm prepared to take out the whole division. I'm going to wipe it out. This is a main event fight on the fastest selling UFC event in history. It's not going to end well for him. It's going to be a cold night in Dublin for him."

Brandao:

"Conor, he's been talking. His mouth's running. He's sayig he's going to eat my soul. He's going to do this, he's going to do that... This has motivated me. Conor, he's a talented guy, but I don't think he can beat me. He's probably a better striker, but I have jiu jitsu. I have wrestling. I know I can beat him down, for sure."
