Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, was showing off his throwing arm ahead of the Dallas Cowboys game last Sunday in Texas (video here), and I hate to be so cliche about it, but don’t quit your day job.
McGregor was on hand with his record-breaking Irish whiskey, Proper No. 12, to watch the home team wallop the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars, a beating not unlike the one “Notorious” suffered against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas (highlights).
Perhaps their rematch can take place in front of 100,000 screaming fans?
“I was saying to Jerry Jones, the owner, I said, ‘You know what would look good in this stadium, right in the center of it, a UFC Octagon.’ Not only a UFC Octagon, but my bare feet inside of it, ready to go. Think of that, take a look at this (expletive) place.”
That kind of attendance might be enough to justify this.
This isn’t the first time the promotion has been linked to a super fight inside AT&T Stadium in Dallas. The promotion once teased Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko for “The Lone Star State,” as well as the Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman rematch.
Even McGregor vs. Jose Aldo was under consideration.
Before we can start talking about when “Notorious” will fight in Dallas, we must first find out if he plans to fight at all. McGregor has been known to vanish for long periods of time (because he can afford to) and there is still some unfinished business with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
I guess in times like this we must ask ourselves, what would Jesus do?
