Croke Park Could Host Conor McGregor Vs. Donald Cerrone

Conor McGregor vs. Donald Cerrone at Croke Park, anyone...?

Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, has been linked with a Conor McGregor fight since he outgrew the indoor arena in his home city.

In just his third UFC fight, McGregor brought the famed Octagon to Ireland, selling out the-then O2 Arena as he destroyed Diego Brandao.

But, of course, McGregor's UFC's pay-per-view king. He's been restricted to fighting in the States to cater the PPV market.

However, his next potential opponent, Donald Cerrone, has hinted at fighting the ex-UFC champion in his backyard.

The UFC bonus collector added: "I hope the fight goes through. I can't get my hopes up.

"He dictates everything, man. I can say yes. Well, I can't say I'll fight anybody anymore, because now I told my team I'll take it easy.

"I want a top-five guy. Conor's (No.) 2. That equals top-five to me. He's the master of talking (expletive). I'm sure he'll try and get under my skin. It will be fun.

"March, April, May - the sun's out. I can bring my boat and RV to (Las) Vegas. I'm sure it will be in Vegas, or Ireland. F**k yeah. Let's go."

Could Croke Park really stage McGregor vs. Cerrone?

Well, 'anything's possible' according to Dana White.

"I mean, anything's possible," the UFC president said. "If those guys want that and the fans want to see it, that's what I do."

UFC have already staged a monster-stadium event in Europe.

They set up shop at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, and attracted in excess of 30,000 fans.

Though a bout at Croke Park would garner a much, much bigger crowd. We're talking 80,000+ people.
