DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BSN® (Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition) announced today that it has partnered with UFC champ Conor "The Notorious" McGregor to further fuel his training, recovery, and performance. Recognized globally for its series of category firsts and leading-edge products such as N.O.-XPLODE®, SYNTHA-6®, and AMINOX®, BSN® partnering with McGregor underscores the brand's commitment to help athletes push their performance to the next level.
"Conor is the human embodiment of all that BSN® stands for, both inside and outside of the Octagon," said Kent Cunningham, VP, Global Marketing for BSN®. "In Conor, we are witnessing an athlete who pushes himself and his sport past previous limits; BSN® continues to do the same with sports nutrition."
The BSN®/McGregor partnership is particularly noteworthy given McGregor's upcoming fight against Jose Aldo in the main event of Ultimate Fighting Championship 194 in Las Vegas on December 12th. "I'm going in with a supreme confidence that my opponent cannot take my power or decipher my movements," said McGregor. "I will go in, press forward and use my movement to freeze him."
For McGregor, the UFC Featherweight champion, partnering with BSN® is a reflection of his commitment to continuous improvement. "I take my nutrition very, very seriously. You can't cut corners in this game. You must align yourself with the best in each field, and that is what I have done. BSN® is leading the way in nutrition and supplementation," said McGregor. "They are breaking barriers in their field and I am breaking barriers in my field. It's a partnership."
Like McGregor, BSN® believes in not only setting the bar, but constantly raising it. "Neither Conor nor BSN are satisfied with just dominating our chosen fields; we seek to redefine them," said Cunningham.
Added McGregor: "I have been told I can't my whole life. I simply tell them I can. That pushes me on and motivates me to finish first."
