WARRINGTON Wolves marketing chiefs have done it again.

The Wire take on derby rivals Wigan tomorrow, Friday, at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

And in the latest bit of 'close to the bone' marketing from Wolves, the 'Bad Blood' match is being billed as bigger than some of the most notorious sporting contests of recent times.

In a Tweet posted this afternoon with a picture of props Mike Cooper and Tony Clubb from Tuesday's pre-game press conference, Wolves say Wire v Wigan 'has more bad blood than Mike Tyson v Evander Holyfield and UFC's Conor McGregor v Khabib Nurmagomedov'.

And it has even provoked a cheeky response from UFC Europe and its 421,000 Twitter followers.

Limited tickets remain in the East and North stands with good availability in the West Stand.
