conor-mcgregor-3.jpgSTOCKHOLM – With a dazzling UFC debut, a $60,000 “Knockout of the Night” bonus, and a quickly filling bandwagon, featherweight prospect Conor McGregor appears to have a date for his next fight.

Following McGregor’s 67-second dismantling of Marcus Brimage (6-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 9 event at Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe Arena, the Irish fighter next will fight in a city with Irish roots.

According to UFC President Dana White, McGregor (13-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will be featured at (the awkwardly named) UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 event, the organization’s debut show on the soon-to-launch UFC on FOX Sports 1 channel.

“The answer is yes,” White said when asked about the possibility following Saturday’s event.

No other fights are currently scheduled for the card, which takes place at TD Garden in Beantown. White also didn’t mention a potential opponent for the fast-rising prospect.

McGregor, a former dual-division champ for the U.K.-based Cage Warriors promotion, entered the UFC with lofty expectations. As good on the mic as he is in the cage, White and other officials are clearly enamored with the 24-year-old, who now owns a nine-fight win streak with nine stoppages, including seven in the first round.

In fact, though Boston is next, White said McGregor is just the type of star who could lead the organization to its first show in Ireland since UFC 93 in early 2009. Many Irish fans, in fact, made the jaunt to Stockholm to see Saturday’s bout.

“We love this sport [in Ireland],” McGregor said. “It was great to see all the Irish lads out there. It was unbelievable. Hopefully that persuades Dana to come back to Dublin. There’s some great fighters over in our area. Hopefully we get a show out of this.”
