UFC President Dana White will strip Conor McGregor of his UFC Lightweight title, meaning the upcoming fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson at UFC 223 in April will be for the title McGregor now holds.
That has prompted speculation, including from UFC president Dana White, that the 29-year-old may have faced his last bout in mixed martial arts.
But McGregor has repeatedly said that his career isn't over, and that he plans on fighting again. "Period. I am the best at this", he wrote.
I am fighting again. On top of the fighting. Because I am here.
A ton of heat has recently surfaced about McGregor possibly returning to face Floyd Mayweather, whom he lost a tenth-round TKO in their hyped boxing match last August, in the Octagon. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ™.
