It was announced during the broadcast of UFC fight night 101 last week that, the companies first ever simultaneous two weight champion, Conor McGregor, had relinquished his featherweight championship making the interim champion, Jose Aldo, the undisputed champion. This was a result of the UFC needing to elevate Max Holloway vs Anthony Pettis at UFC 206 to the main event as Daniel Cormier was forced to withdraw from the event with injury.
“Jose was KO’d, Eddie was KO’d, you’re looking at the two-weight world champion and that’s it” – Conor McGregor
During a Q&A at the Devenish bar in Belfast, Ireland on Friday was asked weather the UFC’s claims he voluntarily gave up the featherweight championship was true and his response was The Notorious at his most entertaining best. “Whatever they want to say, and they can say ‘Oh we took the belt and now it’s this guys belt,’ you can play with those fake belts all you want.”
