Conor McGregor calls UFC’s bluff – ‘You’ll do nothing”

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is calling the UFC’s bluff.  ‘Mystic Mac’ took to Twitter early this morning, challenging the UFC to a confrontation of sorts.

“You’s’ll strip me of nothing you’s do nothing (expletives),” McGregor wrote in response to him being stripped of the title due to inactivity. UFC 223’s main event on Saturday is a bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. The fight is for the official UFC lightweight title, something McGregor doesn’t necessarily agree with.

McGregor won the title in November 2016 after knocking out then champion Eddie Alvarez. He has yet to defend the belt as he was involved in one of the biggest boxing bouts of all time when he challenged undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr., in August 2017. McGregor has already been stripped of the featherweight title he won after defeating Jose Aldo in December 2015. He never defended that strap either.

UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson has also been stripped of his belt as Saturday’s matchup between Holloway and Nurmagomedov will provide the organization with an official champion.
