You likely caught a glimpse of the official “UFC 189: Aldo vs. McGregor” trailer when it debuted Saturday during UFC 187. If you missed it, don’t worry because it will surely be plastered on television and the Internet until the curtain is drawn on the July 11 event.
According to UFC president Dana White, it is the most money the promotion has ever spent on a single video ad, and he claims it was well worth its weight in gold.
“It’s the most expensive commercial we’ve ever shot, but without a doubt the most bad ass commercial we’ve ever done,” White stated over the weekend.
It is pretty sweet. You can certainly tell the UFC is putting a lot of their eggs in UFC 189’s basket. Why wouldn’t they? It features their new golden boy Conor McGregor.
Oh yeah, and it also stars featherweight king Jose Aldo.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.
