Conor McGregor Not Giving Up On Ireland Title Fight, But Understands Situation

Conor McGregor’s vision quest towards the UFC featherweight title has always included a stadium show in Ireland where he captures the belt.

That might not be completely fulfilled.

Following McGregor’s fifth straight UFC victory over Dennis Siver Sunday night, officials stated that plans are for “Notorious” and Jose Aldo to meet later this year – but in Las Vegas.

“I keep hearing Vegas,” McGregor said, during the post-fight show. “I’ll give it one last push for Ireland. Vegas is Vegas. I’ll get the belt.

“The vision’s a little off, but we’re doing the stadium sometime.”

Aldo vs. McGregor almost went down this weekend, as the Irish fighter jumped out of the Octagon and went face-to-face with the champion, who was sitting cageside.

With Siver in the rear-view and Aldo on the forefront, McGregor gave his thoughts on the person many consider one of the pound-for-pound best in the world.

“I feel like I’ll break him,” he said. “He looks small. He has the same body type as Diego Brandao. He feels small.

“Jose will be the same. He knows I’m coming for him. When the time comes, I will shut him down.”
