Well let it be said, that on this day, Saturday, December 12, 2015 at the MGM Garden in Las Vegas, Conor McGregor ends the 10 year unbeaten streak of, “Scarface,” Jose Aldo to become the New Featherweight Champion. After all the months of Build up, trash talk, media coverage, and the images of McGregor snatching the belt away from Aldo, he indeed did just that as McGregor sends him sailing to the mat with a devastating left hook. “Precision beats power, and timing beats speed,” McGregor tells Joe Rogan immediately after the match as reported by Matt Boone of MMA News. Conor McGregor’s next plans is to move up and challenge for the Lightweight Championship which is currently held by Rafael dos Anjos. Jose Aldo feels that he should deserve an immediate rematch and insists that the trash talk didn’t affect him in this fight. Should this rematch not go through, more than likely, McGregor’s next opponent in the Featherweight Division will be #1 contender Frankie Edgar who is currently on a 4 fight winning streak and has already defeated 3 top 10 fighters in his weight class.
I am a current student at Illinois Media School wanting to get into the field of Sports Broadcasting, Media, and Journalism in Television and Radio. I am very passionate about Sports History and Culture! I host two two hour Sports Radio Shows on www.chicagolandsportsradio.com/; On Point, every Tuesday from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and On Deck, every Saturday from 2:00-4:00 p.m. I see myself hosting my own Sports Radio Show in about 2-5 years from now. My passion is to engage my mind with Sports and to keep people up-to-date! My biggest Icons in the business are Chris Berman of ESPN, Al Michaels who is the former Voice for ABC doing Monday Night Football and now Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Jonathan Hood of ESPN Radio who is one of the Instructors for IL Media School. My favorite thing to do is to never be shy of taking Classic TV Shows, Professional, and Fighting Sports and whip them into a Promo and mixing them down into nice opening segments for my Sports Debates!
