MMA SQUARED: Conor McGregor promoting out of both sides of his mouth

Respect and appreciation, but don’t be a B-word.

What’s up everyone! I am back and feeling refreshed just in time for a Mystic Fight Week. I was curious how the UFC would navigate the need to simultaneously promote McGregor without exposing him to too much journalism, especially by a paper of note such as the New York Times. It’s a crafty approach they’ve taken, with McGregor flexing his humble side for the mass appeal interview while his stans get a taste of his antagonistic, psychological warfare via his Instagram account.

Speaking of the world’s foremost newspaper I’m working on a limited edition t-shirt that pokes fun at McGregor’s legal woes, but need cotton bureau to approve the design. Hopefully I’ll have the final word tomorrow so let’s keep our fingers crossed that The New York Crimes becomes a reality.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
