It was announced earlier today that Conor McGregor would be fighting Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 59 in January as the main event in Boston.
McGregor did a Q&A before the UFC 179 weigh-ins with the hostile Brazilian crowd, who even chanted death threats at McGregor, but the Notorious one was unwavering.
“Dennis is an easy contest. I like to think of Dennis as a keep fresh, get rich fight.”
“I am the No. 1 contender. The next time Jose steps in the octagon after Saturday night will be to face me. In the meantime, I took a fight with Dennis Siver to eliminate another contender. It’s as simple as that.”
