This afternoon I received an email from director Colin Byrne that read:
This is a short film I shot in Irelands largest mma gym and newly opened SBG ,captures the atmosphere & fetures Conor Mcgregor, Gunnar Nelson & John Kavanagh, hope you guys enjoy it
I should have stopped him mid-sentence and told him ‘Dude, you had me at Ireland’ — but it was an email, making that virtually impossible. Actually I should have stopped reading the email, then stand up from my chair and utter the words ‘Dude, you had me at Ireland,’ and sit down as if I wasn’t a lunatic talking to myself in my office.
The fact still remains, Ireland is awesome (Cork, Ireland especially) and this video of Ireland’s new MMA gym, SBG Concorde, is equally amazing. It features UFC’s Gunnar Nelson, Conor McGregor and overall badass John Kavanagh from Braveheart, The Tudors, Alexander, Vikings — basically any movie/TV show that involves bludgeoning a human’s skull with brute force. Check it out.
