Conor McGregor looking to enjoy historic picture of him holding aloft two belts at UFC 205

It may not need an army to take away a belt from Conor McGregor if he wins his second UFC title at UFC 205.

When asked about giving up a belt if he were to win two, McGregor stated that ‘It will take an army to take one of those belts from me’ at the UFC 205 pre-fight press conference.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated‘s Mike Dyce however, the Dublin native seems to has changed his stance on the whole topic.

“Let me see the pictures on publications with a belt on each shoulder first. Let me go onto the side of that Octagon and raise two world titles, what’s never been done before, before talking about stripping me. Let me get the f**king things, let me do it. I’ll always listen to the correct business move, and I’ll always do what is the correct move, but let me do it and let me go back and look at some pictures of me with two belts and let me embrace it for half-a-day.

“Don’t be trying to take away the historic moment before I’ve even experienced it.”

With McGregor receiving this title shot at UFC 205 however, it has left many fighters who are in contention in those weight-classes unhappy. Jose Aldo, the UFC interim featherweight champion has vowed never to fight again unless he gets a rematch with the ‘Notorious’ one. The true number one contender in the lightweight division, Khabib Nurmagomedov also has had issues with the UFC’s booking.

McGregor could care less about these detractors.

“Everyone wants to see you do good, but not better than them,” he said. “That’s what’s happening here. I’m just looking forward to raising the belts, and doing what has not been done before.

“Don’t be trying to take away the historic moment before I’ve even experienced it.”
