Oops! UFC promotes Conor McGregor as American for Jose Aldo fight

Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor will apparently be a battle between Brazil and the USA based on what the UFC's graphic department believes.

UFC 194 is just two weeks away and is expected to be one of the greatest PPVs ever put together. Jose Aldo will finally face Conor McGregor for the undisputed featherweight title, and anticipation for this main event is incredibly high. The UFC crew heavily promoted this card during the UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Masvidal broadcast from Seoul, South Korea, but there's just one problem with their efforts. Pay attention to the flag next to Ireland's McGregor. (H/T GrabakaHitman)

The USA's own Conor McGregor! Who knew he was born and raised in Boston this entire time? What next, the Ireland flag for Marcus Davis?

Maybe we can just pass this off as a singular mistake, but maybe we just need to just get used to the idea of McGregor being American. Just a few days ago, Andrew McGahon tweeted this picture of a Reebok jacket with McGregor listed under USA.

So anyway, be sure to check out Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor on December 12th in a Venezuela vs. Canada battle for the ages.
