Dana White To Allow Conor McGregor To Hold Two UFC Titles Simultaneously?

Although in the past the UFC has never allowed a fighter to simultaneously hold two titles in two different weight divisions, it sounds like UFC President Dana White is about to make an exception for a “Notorious” star.

On this Wednesday’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” White spoke about McGregor’s desire to fulfill his dream of being a two-division champion in the UFC.

“Conor has said that he would like to win the 155-pound belt and fight four times a year and defend both belts. If anybody can do it, Conor McGregor can. This guy has pretty much done everything he said he would do. I’m interested.”

As noted, traditionally, the UFC hasn’t considered such a situation, White is of the belief that if an exception should be made for anyone, Conor McGregor is the guy.

“That is true that normally I would say if you’re going to move up in weight, you have to give up the belt. But Conor has done everything he said he would do. He loves to fight. He really likes money, so if anybody could do it, it’s probably him.”

McGregor unified the UFC Featherweight Championship by defeating Jose Aldo with a shocking 13-second knockout. Now the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion, “The Notorious” one has already made it clear that he intends to move up to the UFC Lightweight division and challenge for that title, perhaps as soon as his next fight.

No announcements have been made yet regarding the next fight for both the UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor and the UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos.
