Only Jon Jones has been stripped of a UFC world title more than once, and now it appears we can add Conor McGregor to that list as well.
Despite being the first UFC fighter in history to hold two division world titles, Conor McGregor is also the first fighter in history to be stripped of two separate world titles and having never defended them.
UFC president Dana White confirmed his plans to strip McGregor after he got pressed for answers in an interview with TMZ.
“Right,” White answered when asked if Conor would be stripped. “Is he upset? Conor understands. Conor made a lot of money. He wants some time off, but the division has to go on and the business has to go on.”
“I’d like to see Conor fight the winner. It was August and then September [for his return]. I say it all the time, with that kind of money, Conor might never come back. It’s a lot of money.”
