The UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor won the belt in a highly dominating fashion against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. Since then he went on to have multi-million dollar boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. However, he hasn’t fought in the UFC in over a year and hasn’t yet defended his title. He has been holding the division hostage and is now on the verge of being stripped of his title. However, “The Notorious” has now reacted to the UFC President’s comments that he will be stripped via a tweet.
McGregor had won the title in a highly dominating fashion against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. He had knocked out the former champion in a brutal way via punches in the second round. However, he hasn’t fought in the octagon ever since and has never even once defended his title in more than one and a half year.
Conor McGregor last fought and defeated Diaz at UFC 202 via unanimous decision. He then went on to challenge former UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez for his title. “The Notorious” defeated Alvarez via TKO in the second round at UFC 205. However, he has been on a hiatus from MMA ever since and instead went on to have a much discussed boxing match with the legendary Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather had a multi-million dollar boxing match last summer. “The Notorious” had lost the bout via TKO in the tenth round. Although, he did receive a lot of praise for his valiant effort against arguably the greatest boxer of the current generation.
He had also claimed that he would be ready to step in and replace any of the two headlining fighters if needed. However, according to some claims made by Nurmagomedov he refused, when he was offered the fight by the UFC. “The Eagle” will now instead face the current UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway for the undisputed UFC lightweight title in the new main-event for UFC 223.
At the UFC 223 press conference, White had claimed that McGregor will soon be stripped of his belt. “Mystic Mac” took to Twitter and sent out a tweet stating that no one will strip him of his title. Here’s what he tweeted:
You’s’ll strip me of nothing you’s do nothing cunts.
