Employee of the Month – Gregory McConnors

Employee of the Month is a monthly award given out to some of our exemplary employees here in the Cage Burn Kingdom. We recognise the unique space that we inhabit in this unique sport. We recognise that in order for us to have content, we require colossal blunders from people teetering on the brink of insanity. And so this month, we recognise:

Employee of the Month, April 2016 – Gregory McConnors (Industrial Relations Officer)

During the month of April, nobody did more than this newcomer on the Cage Burn scene, Gregory. He spent much of the month improving the company through his expansive knowledge and application of industrial relations.

He was a valuable go-between bridging the gap between management and employees, doing the majority of his yeoman’s work while on secondment in Iceland. Innovations in his use of social media should to be the difference. Without his dedication and hard work, we can truly say we might have had zero work during April.

We’re also extremely grateful to long-term content creator Conor McGregor for recommending this previously unearthed gem to us. Apparently they were lifelong friends who had met as children while on holiday in a town called Nilbud.

Many other employees could have staked a claim to this month’s award. We would like to thank Jonathan for his work with our security team and young Diego for his work after hours with our loss prevention unit at one of our establishments. Diego was a favourite for the Award until Gregory came on the scene, and we are particularly fond of him here at Cage Burn, owing to him battling a semi-crippling drug addiction and overcoming a previously violent past. If only we had the power to give out three awards.

Faces of MMAeth – Diego Brandao

Poor old Diego’s on a bit of a downward spiral. After a widely publicised loss to a fellow MMAeth abuser he got back into the wins column for a couple of bouts, even netting a Performance of the Night bonus vs Katsunori Kikuno with a TKO in Japan.

However, after testing positive for Marijuana following a triangle choke loss after a spirited contest vs Brian Ortega at UFC 195 back in January, the Brazilian wax merchant has been on the slippery slope to skid row.

As reported by MMAjunkie, “Early this past Thursday morning, Brandao allegedly fought three employees at the downtown Albuquerque club Knockouts before returning to brandish a gun, according to an arrest warrant obtained today”.

In an official UFC statement, the organisation claimed to be “concerned by the nature of the reported allegations” but refused to comment on further allegations that the 28-year-old Jackson-Wink fighter had started the fight due to the DJ’s refusal to play Danish eurodance group Aqua’s breakthrough 1997 hit ‘Barbie Girl’.

A teammate of Brandao’s at Jackson-Wink did, however, confirm that the Albuquerque-based UFC fighter had a penchant for ‘motor boating’ strippers to said pop song.  Diego is well-liked at the world-class training facility, where he is also much admired for his skill in ‘helicoptering’ his penis whilst singing the lyrics to ‘Barbie Girl‘ at the top of his voice in the changing rooms.
