Conor McGregor’s dream of headlining a stadium show in his native Ireland will apparently come to fruition if the interim featherweight champion successfully unifies the belts at UFC 194.

According to UFC President Dana White, a McGregor (18-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC) victory over reigning 145-pound champ Jose Aldo (25-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) at UFC 194 will set up his next bout for Dublin’s famed Croke Park stadium, which holds more than 80,000 spectators.

“If he beats Jose Aldo in Las Vegas in December, the next fight will be in Croke Park,” White told the NRL Footy Show in Australia. “We told him he could defend his title at Croke Park.”

UFC 194, which plays host to Aldo vs. McGregor, takes place Dec. 12 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

I still hope Aldo rocks him all the to humblesville. I love a good schtick, love a good talker with a big ego, but good grief at the go big conference was a bit ridiculous. If Aldo losses and he goes to LW I will be rooting for Cowboy to kick him sideways.

I wrote a post one day stating that Edgar was Connors biggest threat.

Edgar is not so much of a threat when 80,000 fans boo you every time you attempt to clinch and the referee panics with quick stand ups.

Edgar is without doubt the most calm, composed fighter out there but I think even he will end up fighting against McGregors showman persona instead of just McGregors skill set due to the conditions that he would face in Ireland compared to Las Vegas.
