Watch first UFC Fight Night 59 video preview for 'McGregor vs. Siver' on Jan. 18 in Boston


This first video preview for UFC Fight Night 59, which takes place inside the TD Garden in Boston, Mass., on Jan. 18, 2015, should give you a pretty good indication of how the promotion views Conor McGregor in the build up to his FOX Sports 1 main event against Dennis Siver.

It boils down to "God's gift to featherweights" vs. "some guy you probably recognize."

There is a lot on the line for the "Notorious" trash talker, least of which is a 145-pound title shot against reigning division kingpin Jose Aldo -- maybe -- if he can beat the brakes off the mixed martial arts (MMA) "veteran" who like the Irish import, prefers to stand and bang.

And there's that electric co-main event that failed to get mentioned.

McGregor (16-2) is fresh off a first-round shellacking over Dustin Poirier last September in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what was his fourth straight win -- and third finish -- since joining Team ZUFFA in 2013. Siver (22-9), meanwhile, recently took a unanimous decision win over Charles Rosa in Sweden after serving a nine-month drug suspension.

You dig?
