New UFC promo features a bold prediction from a young Conor McGregor

“My dream is to be world champion in the UFC.”

THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING Championship have been churning out the UFC 189 promos quicker than the length of your average Conor McGregor fight lately.

The organisation is stirring up the hype for one of the most highly-anticipated bouts in mixed martial arts history, which will feature Irish MMA’s biggest star.

McGregor has been a phenomenal success since joining the UFC in 2013, and this latest promo video includes some old footage of the Dubliner from early in his career.

“My dream is to be world champion in the UFC, and I will be,” says McGregor. “Guarantee it.”

McGregor will have the opportunity to fulfil that promise in Las Vegas on 11 July, when he takes on reigning UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the UFC 189 headliner.
