04 Dec Home Away From Home
Boston.com caught up with UFC featherweight contender Conor McGregor during his media tour in Boston last month.
The flashy Irish fighter is headlining the promotion’s return to the city on Jan. 18, where he will face veteran Dennis Siver at the TD Garden. McGregor won his first fight on U.S. soil during the UFC’s previous event in Boston on Aug. 17, 2013.
So it’s a sort of homecoming for McGregor, a fighter that Boston, Southie in particular, has taken under its wing.
