Excellent news.

Nice first fight, too. Brimage has put together some upset wins, but is a pretty small featherweight could be eaten alive by a more technical striker like Conor. Really looking forward to this.

id say they will be looking for a few wins from conor then bring an event back to dublin, they have been talking about it for a while now throw mcgregor on the card and it will make some noise within the irish media increasing popularity of the brand and sport

Brimmage has really impressed me post-TUF, athletic striker type.

McGregor looks pinpoint and dangerous but this is a tough fight for him. Very interesting stuff.

Also, am I the only person who would rather see Lamas Vs Aldo than Pettis?!?!
