Conor McGregor title stripping statement made as Floyd Mayweather's dad drops a bombshell
Conor McGregor to be stripped of his title before UFC 223 UFC president Dana White has confirmed that Conor McGregor will be stripped of his lightweight title.
McGregor, 29, hasn’t set foot inside the Octagon since claiming the 155lbs title 15 months ago in the main event of UFC 205.
“I said in the last press conference, that fight [Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov] will be for the title,” White told TMZ. “It’s not for the interim title, that fight is for the title.”
When told that decision would mean he’d have to strip McGregor of his belt, White added: “Right.”
