Conor McGregor doesn’t want to headline UFC Melbourne.

UFC 193 is obviously a big deal for us MMA fans in Australia and especially Melbourne, but Conor McGregor doesn’t see the appeal.

McGregor, who will face Chad Mendes for the interim featherweight title this weekend, doesn’t feel Melbourne is the right fit for his next fight.

“(Melbourne) does not appeal to me really because it has no significance to me,” said McGregor.  

“It’s the Dublin stadium I want. This is the dream. This is what I created. There’s probably nobody on the roster who could fill a stadium right now except me. For you to take that dream and try to put me in another country to fill a stadium, it doesn’t really interest me.”

There has been a lot of speculation on who will headline UFC 193, the latest speculation being a unification of the featherweight division between Aldo and McGregor — should he get past Mendes first.

UFC managing director of operations for Canada, Australia and New Zealand Tom Wright has revealed that at least one, and more likely two, champions will defend their belt this November in Melbourne.
