Conor McGregor doesn’t seem convinced that the UFC will allow him to headline a show at Dublin’s most famous sporting venue.
However, just before he left for the United States ahead of his UFC 194 showdown with Jose Aldo, Conor McGregor engaged in a little straight-talking about the situation as it stands.
In an interview with Andrew McGahon of SevereMMA, “The Notorious” suggested that the success of UFC 189 may have dented the possibility of one of his fights landing outside of Las Vegas anytime in the near future.
“I feel what I done in Las Vegas in July and what the Irish people done – we brought $200million in revenue to that city – it helped seal the deal on the new MGM deal for the UFC”.
“I’ll believe Croke Park when I see it. I know they say this and they say that but I feel I might be locked into the MGM for a while. I feel the MGM want me every time because of what we bring so I’ll believe Croke Park when I see it”.
Disappointing news, indeed.
