Dana White sounded off for the first time on the UFC’s return to Ireland, scheduled for July 19th in the o2 Arena, with Conor McGregor’s return prevailing as the hot topic after Saturday night’s action in London.
“No we don’t have anything yet,” said the UFC president with regard to scheduled fights for the event. “We’re pretty confident Conor will be on that card.
Tomorrow night in London’s 02 Arena is arguably the most important in the history of Irish MMA. None of our own is going to win a title but, through the perseverance of fans and media on the emerald isle, a much-deserving Neil Seery will make his UFC debut in front of a sold out crowd, and all of us can say that we played our part in getting him there.
Yes there are other fights to look forward to, but the beginning of 2 Tap’s odyssey at MMA’s top table is one of the most compelling and unique stories in the history of the sport. Perhaps more importantly it is tangible evidence that UFC are still a fan-driven organisation.
