Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likes the idea of hosting a UFC event for Conor McGregor.
McGregor recently agreed to fight Dustin Poirier January 23, 2021, and he said he wanted to do it at AT&T Stadium, which is the home of the Cowboys. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Now, it sounds like there’s a very real chance of that happening.
I accept, Jan 23rd is on!
My goal is to see this fight take place in Cowboy stadium. Proper Style! Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our crowd. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans!
Then Manny. #McGregorSportsandEntertainment

Jones said the following Friday during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, according to DallasNews.com:
Very much open to it. Very open to it. I’m a real admirer of his. He’s one of the neatest individuals I think I’ve met, period. He has an unbelievable — to be as physical as he is — he has an unbelievable personality and charisma. He’s special. It would be quite a day for AT&T Stadium
