UFC 194 – Aldo v. McGregor SIMULCAST Comes to The Wilbur

WHAT: On Saturday, December 12, 2015, UFC 194 – Aldo v. McGregor SIMULCAST is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.

This is a LIVE Simulcast of the Aldo-McGregor fight taking place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. If you’re in Boston, now you won’t have to miss the much anticipated face-off between McGregor and Aldo, Saturday, December 12th. Witness the fight live via Simulcast at Boston’s own Wilbur.
Any comprehensive list of great Brazilian MMA fighters would have to include Jose Aldo – a champion and sports deity by anyone’s measure.
The reigning UFC featherweight champion, who has successfully defended his belt seven times since 2011, is regarded as one of the greatest fighters produced by his homeland. He belongs at or near the top of a list of notable Brazilian stylists such as Royce Gracie, Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort, among others.
Whether you appreciate his style or consider him loud and excessive, there’s no denying this about Conor McGregor: the UFC has seen nothing like him.
In the two years since he swooped into the UFC, McGregor has become a lightning rod for controversy. But he has backed up his braggadocio with skilled MMA and an ability to draw fans – most to cheer him, some hoping to see him cut down to size.
At UFC 189 in Las Vegas, he made good on a vow to knock out Chad Mendes, capturing the interim featherweight title and setting up a showdown with Jose Aldo, the UFC’s pound-for-pound king.
