Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is rolling out a new original Fight Pass series this weekend and Conor McGregor will be the first fighter featured.
It makes sense considering “Notorious” is the biggest name in mixed martial arts (MMA) today and currently on track to make his return to the Octagon this October at UFC 229 against lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The series, “UFC Profiles in Combat,” will debut Saturday (Sept. 1, 2018) exclusively on Fight Pass. It will presumably break down the success stories of some of the promotion’s most popular fighters. McGregor will get first dibs.
Check out the video preview above, as well as the official YouTube description below:
This Saturday, check out an all new series coming to UFC Fight Pass - UFC Profiles in Combat. The first episode features Conor McGregor, before he challenges Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight championship at UFC 229.
UFC content tends to be pretty good these days, especially when it comes to “Notorious,” so this new series being released one month before McGregor takes on Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas will likely deliver. At the very least, it’s another opportunity to promote UFC 229.
