McGregor Appears in Reebok Shoe Ad; Cerrone Gets Budweiser Can Ahead of UFC 246
The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 246 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.
Conor McGregor recently shared a video advertisement of a new Reebok shoe on his social media channels, which will be available in February. Reebok is the official outfitter of the UFC, but some fighters also have individual deals with the apparel company. Reebok’s ad with McGregor is significant because of the fighter’s out-of-the cage troubles in recent months, which includes a pair of investigations for alleged sexual assault.
Meanwhile, Donald Cerrone has received a special commemorative Budweiser can ahead of his showdown with McGregor. One side of the can features the image of “Cowboy” along with the the phrase “Live a life worth living.” Additionally, the fighter’s UFC records are listed.
The following statement is also on the label, or front side, of the can: “I want all of the blue collar American working class people to know that I’m out there fighting for them.” The cans will be available in Las Vegas during fight week. The design of the can was initially revealed to Cerrone by ESPN's Brett Okamoto during an interview.
McGregor and Cerrone will square off in the UFC 246 main event on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The evening’s main card will air on pay-per-view via ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
