UFC President Dana White has thrown down the gauntlet to Conor McGregor... beat Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo in Las Vegas and his first title defence will be at Croke Park.

McGregor fights Chad Mendes at the MGM Grand tomorrow night for the interim UFC featherweight title with the winner getting a shot at unbeaten Brazilian Jose Aldo.

In a Q&A with fans this evening, White said that McGregor would get his dream bout in Dublin if he can win his next two fights.

He also had some very interesting comments to make regarding Jose Aldo's rib injury.

He claimed the X-rays produced by the Brazilian's camp were of an old injury and three separate doctors diagnosed him with a bruised rib and not a broken rib.
