While Conor McGregor may never headline AT&T Stadium as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys (reasons seen below), the former UFC double champion is hoping to main event a UFC card in “Jerry World.”

Attending the Dallas Cowboys win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, McGregor would marvel at the home of the NFL franchise, which has hosted boxing events and WWE’s Wrestlemania in the past. McGregor was openly wondering about not only a UFC card there, but with him as the headliner.
“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.”
With McGregor’s future in the air following the chaos of UFC 229, one can wonder if a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov or even a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz could sell out the facility, but until McGregor gets word from the Nevada Athletic Commission, its all armchair quarterbacking.
