UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has come forward with a statement concerning UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
“Notorious” shocked the world when he knocked out Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds for the UFC featherweight title. The Irish native then made UFC history by becoming the first and only fighter to ever simultaneously have two division titles within the promotion when he finished Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight strap.
Now Conor McGregor has taken the mixed martial arts world by storm. The fighter has not competed inside the octagon since earning the lightweight title back in 2016, with the fighter having never defended either of his titles.
Speaking on the matter, Daniel Cormier recently took to Twitter to give McGregor props for his accomplishment. Check it out below:
“Conor Mcgregor May be the longest reigning champ in lightweight history and he’s only fought in the division one time. #gangstash*t #omg”
