Conor McGregor: I will force UFC to return to Ireland

Recent UFC-signee and one-time Cage Warriors Fighting Championship lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor spoke to Ariel Helwani on Monday's The MMA Hour where, among a number of bold declarations, McGregor insisted he is already an Irish living legend, won't have even the slightest hint of Octagon jitters in his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage on April 6th at UFC on FUEL TV 9, completely and assertively rejects the idea he never needs to move to the United States to get the training he'll need for a career in the UFC and through his in-cage exploits will force the UFC to return to Ireland on a faster timeline than their 18-month projected window.
