He has to beat Diego Brandao first...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Conor Mcgregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) said he thinks he'll get a featherweight title shot if he can beat Diego Brandao (18-9 MMA, 4-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 46. The fight will stream on UFC Fight Pass at 12:30 PM Et on Saturday.
On going back to Ireland to fight: "It's a dream come true to be back here to put my nation on the map and to hear that 99% of the nation (could) watch this fight. I don't think there's a fighter in the UFC's history that's done what I've done in the space that I've done it."
On possibly getting a title shot: "When I put this guy away and make it look easy, which I will do, people will say, ‘How did he do that? Let's jump this guy ahead in the queue and put him straight into a title shot'. You're going to see a true No.1 contender here on Saturday night."
On if he feels any pressure: "There is no pressure for me. Pressure is an illusion. I feed on it. Give me more of it."
