ufc fight night 59

First it was Conor McGregor. Teammate Patrick Holohan followed. And now, a third Irish fighter has been added to the UFC Fight Night 59 card, as Cathal Pendred meets Sean Spencer.

The event takes place January 18 from Boston’s TD Garden Arena, as McGregor meets Dennis Siver in the main event. Holohan collides with Shane Howell, as all three are teammates.

Pendred (15-2-1) has won both of his UFC bouts, defeating Mike King and Gasan Umalatov. The former Cage Warriors champion was on Season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter and is on a six-fight win streak overall.

Spencer (12-3) has posted a 3-2 mark since joining the promotion. That includes a recent win over Paulo Thiago.
