Conor McGregor talks Jake Paul, comeback and UFC title aspirations

UFC fans have voiced their anger after Dana White refused to rule out Conor McGregor fighting for the lightweight belt as he returns from injury.

The Irishman is considered one of the sport’s biggest superstars and is said to continue to have the biggest pay-per-view despite his recent two losses. Dustin Poirier.

He is expected to return later this year and has received encouragement that he can challenge for the lightweight title currently held by Charles Oliveira.

The Brazilian will defend his belt against Justin Gaethje on May 7 and White hinted McGregor could challenge the winner.

“We’ll see what with the lightweight division,” he said Underground. “It will depend on who is the champion when Conor McGregor back, they have a say in it. What do they want to do?

“If Oliveira is still champion when Conor comes back, maybe Oliveira wants Conor, we’ll see then.”

However, fans are furious about the prospect with one fan replying: “Yes, this is disgusting.

“First, you know about Conor’s behavior, the fact that he hasn’t won a lightweight fight in a dinghy in years, the fact that he’s just lost a KO and a KO. another due to a broken leg; and then the fact that the division is stacked with the beasts.

“More actual title contenders at LW than in any other department. The race for the title should be aligned with actual contenders over the next two years or something.”

Another fan concurred: “I take McGregor as a draw, but he can sell a card without being awarded the title. Let him fight Nate again or Masvidal or someone else.

“He hasn’t won a lightweight championship in the last six years. You don’t have to destroy the integrity of the sport just to sell PPV. That’s stupid.”

One fan shouted: “Absolutely b*******. Dana is just making things up as he goes. There needs to be a proper rating system that makes sense and makes it clear who’s who. fight for the title.”

One fan compared McGregor to Islam Makhachev: “‘Conor won a lightweight fight five years ago. Islam has won four lightweight fights since last March.”

One fan offered a different opinion: “I don’t agree with Conor getting titles but Dana won’t give him ‘winnable’ fights but what if he loses them too? ?! lose to a nameless relative.”

UFC President White previously admitted that McGregor receive “special treatment”, and declined to rule out an immediate headline shot.

The Irishman is currently in 9th place in the standings and could find himself behind a number of contenders in the queue including Makhachev.
