If the UFC don’t consider Conor McGregor their featherweight champion anymore, it appears they might want to have a sit down chat with him about it — because as far as he’s concerned, he’s not seen an army at the door.
Speaking for the first time publicly since his featherweight title was stripped last Saturday, McGregor voiced his opinion of the ‘relinquishing’ he supposedly greed to.
“[The UFC are] trying to strip me and I was like, ‘Well, I ain’t stripped. I still got that belt, that belt is still at home right now’,” McGregor said, at a Q&A event. “I’m still the two-weight world champion, someone has to come take that from me. I see articles, I see stuff online, but I don’t see the belt not in my presence. The belt is right there, there’s two world titles at my home.
“Eddie [Alvarez] is still unconscious, what do you mean? I only fought last week. Them belts are mine. Whatever they want to say, and they can say, ‘Oh we took the belt and now it’s this guy’s belt,’ you can play with those fake belts all you want. Jose was KO’ed, Eddie was KO’ed, you’re looking at the two-weight world champion and that’s it. I’ll say to the UFC, and I love their company, you’re fooling nobody, you’re fooling nobody with that.
“But best of luck to them, I still got them belts. Someone’s got to come take those belts from me, physically. Not online, not through a keyboard. The keyboard warriors trying to take them belts away from me, [but] you got to take them belts off me physically if you want to come get them.”
