Dana White : McGregor will ‘give up’ one belt if he won UFC 205
Conor McGregor is looking to make history at UFC 205. ‘The Notorious’ captured featherweight gold last year and will look to seize the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden.
McGregor, who knockout Jose Aldo in only thirteen seconds at UFC 194, will challenge 155-pound champion Eddie Alvarez on Nov 12, and the Irishman has officially made arrangements to shield both belts later on.
“I’m going to wrap one on one shoulder, I’m going to wrap the other on the other shoulder, and you’re going to require a (swearword) armed force to come take them belts off me,” McGregor said finally month’s New York question and answer session.
UFC president Dana White, however, says the SBG Ireland item will be compelled to give up one of the belts if he’s successful at UFC 205.
“On the off chance that he wins, he’ll hold two belts,” White said on the most recent version of UFC Tonight (h/t Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie). “At that point he’ll choose which one he needs to offer back to me. He can’t hold both. He’ll have finished this. At that point he’ll need to make sense of which one he needs to give up. He can’t hold up two divisions.”
McGregor turned into a two-division champion in UK MMA promotion Cage Warriors in 2012, completing Dave Hill and Ivan Buchinger to catch both the featherweight and lightweight titles. McGregor never defend a title, be that as it may, and the 28-year-old has gone under feedback for not guarding his UFC 145-pound belt.
Since ousting Aldo, McGregor instantly declared his arrangements to overcome the lightweight division with an end goal to end up the promotion’s first simultaneous two-division champion.
McGregor will get his opportunity to end up maybe the greatest MMA figure ever when he goes up against Alvarez in a champion versus champion superfight at UFC 205. The exceedingly expected pay-per-see happens on November 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
