Watch: Conor McGregor becomes first ever UFC fighter to hold two belts in two divisions simultaneously

Conor McGregor is the first ever UFC fighter to hold two belts in two separate weight classes — at the same time.

Speaking after his victory over Eddie Alvarez, a second round TKO that sent the crowd into mania, McGregor made it clear that while anyone else may not have been sure; he was.

“They’re not on my level,” McGregor said in his post-fight interview. “You got to have size, reach, length. You got to have attributes – if you come in anyway similar to me, I’m going to rip your whole head off, I say it every time.”

Now the man atop two divisions, something that will surely raise the ire of several of his fighter colleagues, McGregor — with a belt on each shoulder — made sure to acknowledge them with a heartfelt statement.

“I’ve been in this business a long time,” McGregor said. “I’ve spent a lot of time job slaying everybody. Backstage I’m starting fights, I’ve ridiculed everybody, and I just want to say from the bottom of my heart… I apologize to absolutely nobody! Fuck everybody!”

Then, the last words from the Double-Champion before he left to celebrate.

“You’re welcome.”
