Conor McGregor Inspires Dallas Cowboys To Victory And Claims He Wants To Fight In The AT&T Stadium

Conor McGregor bounced back from his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov by watching the Dallas Cowboys beat Jacksonville Jaguars 40-7 on Sunday evening and the UFC star made an audacious claim that he wants to fight at the massive AT&T Stadium in the future.

Invited by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, McGregor took to the pitch in front of a monster crowd in Texas and tried his hand at being a quarterback by throwing a few footballs, but his technique certainly needs a bit of fine tuning and the limp-wristed thrower must surely focus on a recapturing his MMA spark rather than taking up a career assisting touchdowns.

Speaking of his delight at being a special guest of the Cowboys, McGregor asked Jones about being part of a potential fight at the epic stadium, which has a capacity of 100,000.  McGregor said: "After being here and seeing it, that Octagon has to be in the centre one day."

Having taken his seat in the crowd McGregor elaborated on his will to fight in such an amazing venue by saying to the camera, "You know what will look good in this stadium, bang in the centre of it, a UFC Octagon and with my bare feet inside of it ready to go."

As McGregor watched the Cowboys demolish the Jaguars, the Cowboys, who had met with the UFC legend on the pitch during their pre-match huddle, elected to pull out McGregor's trademark strut celebrations after scoring one of their many touchdowns in what was an evening that showed the Irishman is still loved despite a harrowing defeat to Khabib a few weeks ago.
