Conor McGregor is vying to become the first UFC fighter in history to claim two titles in two different weight classes simultaneously next month. However, it doesn’t seem like McGregor wants to stop there and is seriously considering going for a third belt later this year, as well.
For months, the reigning featherweight champion has teased that if he defeats Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight title March 5 at UFC 196, his eyes will turn to the 170lbs title with a potential bout against champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 200 in being rumoured.
“Why not go up? They get slower and they get less free up there I feel, they’re stiffer, even more stuck than the lightweight division, I’ll keep going, keep eating, keep training, and keep f–king going until all the belts are wrapped up. I can go all the f–king way.
“I’m afraid of no one. I’ll go up and fight any weight. Anyone can come down and step in that cage with me or any cage and see how they fare but nobody fares well that’s for sure.”
“I am picking what I want and I am doing what I want,” McGregor said. “When you can rack up $400 million dollars in revenue for the company, in back-to-back events, you can do whatever the f–k you want.
“I’m living the ‘whatever the f–k I want’ life. That’s the life I live. Whatever I want, whenever I want, and I have earned that through hard work and through sacrifice and that’s it, through victory.”Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Shaun Al-Shatti & Nate Stark.
