Once Conor McGregor arrived to the presser with a plastic cup of $20,000 whiskey, he was asked whether or not May was a good date for him. “It’s absolutely perfect,” he responded. He went on to explain how the stadium was a vision of his and how he’s happy with doing the fight in Las Vegas. “I’m happy with Vegas! We discussed big business and big business happens to be in Viva Las Vegas.”
