Fans Allowed at UFC 257
News broke last week that limited fans will be allowed at UFC 257. Historically the fans have made a Conor McGregor show what it is. Flying in the hordes over from Ireland and bringing an atmosphere to the week like none other.
January is turning into Conor McGregor’s month, after lighting up 2020 with a huge win over Donald Cerrone last January. The Irishman intends to start 2021 with the same momentum.
How The Rematch Came About
When this fight was originally proposed by McGregor, it was billed as a charity boxing bout. Which the UFC would obviously want an involvement in, just like when McGregor boxed Mayweather.
Now UFC 257 has a headliner and it’s a rematch at lightweight. It’s not expected to be for an interim or vacant title, as Khabib’s official retirement plans remain undecided yet. The 29-0 champion, is now ranked #1 P4P in the UFC’s rankings.
Back when this fight was first pitched by McGregor, it was marketed as a martial arts spar exhibition. Which will obviously continue the feud ‘The Notorious’ one has with the UFC, which is ongoing.
It wasn’t long ago when McGregor announced plans to box Manny Pacquiao, where he opened as a huge betting underdog to PacMan.
