With so little to pick from nowadays, sports networks are scrambling for things that fans might tune into that doesn’t involve live events. With that in mind, Canadian sports network TSN has gotten into the holiday spirit in a unique way - by airing a marathon of Conor McGregor’s best UFC fights for St. Patrick’s Day.
They tweeted out a programming note earlier this morning, showing off exactly what they’re planning to air:
Happy St. Paddy’s everyone! We’ve got you covered with Conor McGregor content all day. Relive some of his best moments on TSN! ☘️ pic.twitter.com/Wdvu8zHXoD— TSN (@TSN_Sports) March 17, 2020
The list includes his fights with Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo, both Nate Diaz fights, his decimation of Eddie Alvarez, the big UFC 229 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and finally, his recent UFC 246 win over Donald Cerrone.
Obviously McGregor didn’t come out on top in all of these bouts, but all of them headlined some of the bigger-drawing events that the UFC has ever put on. And it fits the narrative of the day, so it’s a decent idea.
If you’re Canadian (or get TSN elsewhere), grab yourself some Proper No. 12 and enjoy the day self distancing on the couch with a little Irish flavor.
