UFC superstar Conor McGregor has broken a record within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). That being said, it was perhaps not a record that “Notorious” had set out to break.
McGregor shocked the world when he knocked out Jose Aldo for the featherweight title, only to move up in weight to eventually earn the lightweight title with a stunning finish over Eddie Alvarez. Since then, “Notorious” has yet to step back inside the octagon.
Conor McGregor made his boxing debut in 2017, having suffered a TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. However, the Irish native has yet to defend his UFC lightweight title.
As reported by Nick Dwyer over social media, Conor McGregor has now gone longer without defending his title than any UFC fighter before him.
As of Feb. 19, McGregor has gone 464 days without defending his UFC lightweight title. “Notorious” went 350 days without defending his UFC featherweight belt before vacating the title.
