Fans of Conor McGregor may have to wait a little bit longer to see their man fight in either Croke Park or Aviva Stadium.

At the first press conference to promote his upcoming fight at UFC 197 with Rafael dos Anjos, Notorious had a lot to say but it was his comments on a possible fight in Dublin that should spark the most interest.

In short, it will happen, but it might be a while away.

A fight in a stadium here, in either Aviva or Croke Park, has long been talked about but it doesn't sound like we will see it any time soon.

There was lots more of interest in the press conference, an event which the featherweight champion was a fashionable 30 minutes late for.

As well as promising to 'bully' the Brazilian in their lightweight title fight, he also made his now famous prediction for how the fight would go.

'Mystic Mac' predicts that the fight will last less than one minute, with the result going in his favour of course.

And the show ended with the customary staredown, followed by McGregor trying, and failing, to get his foe to shake his hand.
