Conor McGregor Drops Hint On Where He Wants To Fight Next

Conor McGregor Drops Hint On Where He Wants To Fight Next

Conor McGregor is on a break following his UFC 229 defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas but he still has a venue in mind for a future fight in UFC.

The 30-year-old Irishman went to watch the Dallas Cowboys take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, throwing the ball very badly on the field, mingling with the home players and chatting with the owner Jerry Jones.

And it was in his conversation with Jones that 'The Notorious' revealed of his interest in fighting at the Cowboys' ground, the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

"An Octagon has got to be in the centre of this," McGregor said.

"You know what would look good in this stadium, a UFC Octagon. But not only a UFC Octagon, but my bare feet inside of it ready to go."

A UFC event at a stadium needs to happen but it would of course require the company's biggest name, McGregor, to headline it. Clearly, he's well up for it.

McGregor won't be returning to UFC anytime soon with a ban set to be enforced but his coach, John Kavanagh has already put a time-frame on when his comeback will likely be.

"I think summer is probably realistic," Kavanagh told Joe Rogan on his podcast.

"We have to obviously see what punishment Khabib gets. Hopefully, it's not a long ban."

The dream scenario for McGregor would be for him to as close to St Patrick's Day as possible and Kavanagh stressed how special it would be if the former two-weight champ was to fight on the UFC card on March 16.

"It's funny I was looking at March 16 [as the next fight] as Paddy's day is March 17," he added.

"That's a Sunday and March 16 is a Saturday so imagine Madison Square Garden on the Saturday night before St Patrick's Day. That would be insane."
