Conor McGregor Wins
At the start of each week, UFC president Dana White sits down with web content producer Matt Parrino for The Download, where he discusses the most recent octagon news.

In this week’s edition, of The Download Uncle Dana talked about Conor McGregor and how he feels the young Irishman is the logical #1 contender at 145-pounds, his words:

“Here’s the thing: If you go down the list, every one of those guys has fought Jose Aldo already,” said White. “Conor hasn’t. So who do you line up next for the champ other than Conor? Everybody else has fought him.”

“So Lorenzo and I went to dinner with him last night, and he said he wants to fight Diego Sanchez in Mexico at 155. I said, ‘You’re nuts. No way, we’ll get you a fight. You’ll be fighting soon enough.’ The kid just wants to fight. He said him and Diego have been talking back and forth for a while and he wanted to fight him. We basically told him no and he went out and put that on Twitter anyway.”

Should Conor McGregor get the next crack at the UFC’s coveted featherweight title? Or does it make more sense for the winner of November’s Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson bout to get the nod? Sound off Penn Nation!
