Conor McGregor teases UFC Dublin fight this Christmas

Fans have been calling for the move for years


Conor McGregor has teased a UFC Dublin fight – and fans are going crazy.

The MMA star has already said he is planning to make his return to the Octagon before the end of the year.

This weekend US fighter Justin Gaethje beat Donald Cerrone, and while many thought he would call out the Dublin champion after winning the fight, he called for his enemy Khabib Nurmagomedov.

But MMA critics and fans alike were quick to call for the Proper No. Twelve founder to fight Gaethje.

And now Conor, 31, has sent fans into overdrive, tweeting: “Dublin, December 14th”.

MMA fans have been calling for a UFC fight to take place in Dublin ever since Conor became champion of the organisation.

It comes a week after the father-of-two told UFC bosses to book a rematch with Khabib in Moscow.
