Conor McGregor is finally set to have a fight. Yes! The good news for fans and followers of Conor Mcgregor is here. Your favorite fighting star is all set to deliver his new fight, wanna know more. So read till the end. UFC President Dana White told ESPN on Wednesday that McGregor had no date available for the advertising to headline a card this year, so they presented him with his own date — Jan. 23, 2021. McGregor tweeted hours later on Wednesday that he had accepted the date and was hoping to see the fight take place at Arlington, Texas’ AT&T Stadium.
On Wednesday, the former two-division champion announced, “I accept, Jan. 23 is on! His tweet, which at the time of this writing was up to almost 20,000 likes, came after White rejected his requirement for a rematch before the end of the year with Poirier. McGregor tweeted that he had approved the date and wished to see the fight take place in Arlington, Texas, at AT&T Stadium. AT&T Stadium is set to open at 25 percent of capacity after implementing safety measures aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19, allowing over 20,000 fans for the Cowboys’ football games. It is unclear whether the UFC will move its operations base from Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi, where strict safety measures have been implemented that reflect the bubbles created by other major sports leagues. “I accept, it’s on Jan 23rd! My goal is to see this battle take place at the Cowboy stadium. Proper Style!” tweeted McGregor. “Jerry Jones is a friend and our crowd can be held in the stadium. I’m going to be ready for Texas and my fans will be ready for Texas! Then Manny.”The end of the tweet backtracked on McGregor’s claims that in the near future, he will fight Manny Pacquiao in a boxing match. Poirier responded to McGregor’s acceptance, writing, ‘On my birthday weekend, close to home for me! What weight?’ McGregor and Poirier began discussing an exhibition bout in late September to support charitable causes, including the Good Fight Foundation of Poirier. The UFC stood up, unsurprisingly, to try instead to put their contracted fighters in the Octagon.
