McGregor: "F**k Vegas. I’m done with it. I want Ireland."
With just 16 days to go until his super fight against Rafael dos Anjos in Las Vegas, Nevada at UFC196, the Notorious Conor McGregor has vowed to fight closer to his fans in the very near future.
Speaking exclusively to SevereMMA.com last night on the issue of all his fights being in Las Vegas, Conor blasted: “F**k Vegas. I'm done with it. I want Ireland. And if they don't give me Ireland I want east coast. I'll head back to Boston. I know they are lobbying for New York.
"I'll go back to the 3Arena. I don't care if it's only 9,000 fans. I haven't outgrown Dublin. No way
"Vegas is my next fight. And I've committed to UFC 200 in Vegas again but then it's Dublin or east coast."
And what of the rumours that he will leave the UFC and set up McGregor Promotions?
"That's all horse sh*t. I have a great relationship with the promotion. I have a great relationship with Lorenzo and Dana. Don't get me wrong, I'm climbing that corporate ladder and we will be neck and neck. But we will always be together.
"Loyalty is what I have. They gave me this. They are helping me with this. And I am helping them. We are a team. Much respect. I just want to grow and get my share of the pie. They know that. But I will always be in association with Zuffa and the team at UFC. It's an honour to do that."
The featherweight champ will fight Dos Anjos for the lightweight crown on March 5 and he didn't rule out going up another division, adding: "I'm afraid of no one. I'll fight at any weight."
