UFC President Dana White joined members of the media following the UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Brandao card, where he discussed the event's remarkable success, as well as the outstanding performance of hometown star Conor McGregor.

The second of the UFC's two Fight Night events this week featured the promotion's long awaited return to Dublin, Ireland, and saw hometown favourite Conor McGregor pick up a first round stoppage victory against Brazil's Diego Brandao.

Following the event, UFC President Dana White quickly suggested that McGregor would not be on a Fight Pass card in his next octagon outing. In fact, he revealed that Las Vegas, Nevada would be the next likely destination for the featherweight standout.

"I was saying to Lorenzo, ‘what should we do with him (McGregor)?' He said let's bring him to Vegas. I said ok, we'll bring him to Vegas."

White went on to rave about the decibel level in the The O2 Arena on Saturday, as well as how Ireland surpassed the previous top crowds in Australia, Brazil and Sweden.

The post-fight scrum was far shorter than the pre-fight scrum from several days ago but is still worth checking out for White's thoughts on McGregor and what's next for European MMA.
