Dana White: ‘Croke Park needs McGregor and Duffy’

October 21, 2015 8:06 am by Evan Bell

Since ‘Irish Joe’ Duffy made his UFC debut earlier this year there has been much talk of a rematch between he and Conor McGregor. Duffy defeated Conor Mcgregor back in 2010 via submission in McGregor’s 6th professional fight. His signing to the UFC set the stage for a potential rematch, but this time under the UFC banner.

During a recent interview with UFC.com Dana White discussed the possibility of a UFC event being held at Ireland’s Croke Park.

“To do Croke Park, we’re going to need Conor and Duffy to do that one. I think it’s incredible that these guys want to fight there. I think it’s incredible that the fans want it so bad, and I want it as bad as they want it, too.”

White’s statement can be taken two ways. One of which being that the UFC needs “Conor and Duffy to do that one” as in the UFC needs the two to fight. Or it could be looked at as the UFC needs the star power of both Irishmen on the card, but not necessarily with them fighting one another.

Do you think we will ever see a McGregor vs. Duffy rematch?
