Conor McGregor: UFC Will Need A F*cking Army To Take One Of My Titles After UFC 205

0

As noted, UFC President Dana White announced during his ESPN SportsCenter appearance on Tuesday that even if Conor McGregor does claim a second UFC title with a win over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November, he will still be forced to give up one of his titles and continue with his Octagon career as a champion of one UFC division.

Apparently this was something that “The Notorious” one was not aware of.

At the official UFC 205 ticket on-sale press conference held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday, the reigning UFC Featherweight Champion made it clear that he won’t be giving up any titles without a fight.

“They’re going to have to gather an army to try and take one of them (belts) off me, and that’s out straight,” McGregor said during the entertaining press conference for the big event, which will be the UFC’s first-ever event held in the state of New York.

The top PPV draw in the sport continued, “One’s going to be there, one’s going to be there, and I’m going to be picking and choosing who I want to destroy next. And that’s it.”

According to McGregor, who is known for his “Mystic Mac” predictions, which often come to fruition, he believes the 155-pound division will be the one that he “takes over the most.”

“I’m very happy with the 155-pound weight limit,” McGregor said. “I feel of all the divisions I’ve ran around and ran through, 155, I feel, will be the one where I take over the most. So, I look forward to that.”

Later in the presser, McGregor reiterated his belief that UFC will “need an army” to take one of his titles if he wins a second one from Alvarez in November.

“I’m going to wrap one (belt) on one shoulder, and I’m going to wrap the other on the other shoulder, and they’re going to need a f*cking army to come take them belts off me,” McGregor said.
