Conor McGregor Responds To UFC's Title-Stripping Threat With Vulgar Defiance

Conor McGregor Responds To UFC's Title-Stripping Threat With Vulgar Defiance

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is calling the UFC's bluff.

Early Thursday morning, McGregor tweeted his displeasure over UFC President Dana White's decision Wednesday to strip him of his title won in November 2016 as the 29-year-old Irish fighter hasn't been in the ring for the organization since.

White confirmed that Ferguson would revert to being the number one contender with the victor at UFC 223 taking McGregor's belt.

There's a warrant out for Conor McGregor after he attacked Khabib Nurmagomedov's bus. "One of these two guys will be the champion".

Conor McGregor won't give up his championship belt with or without a fight.

Nurmagomedov is confident of getting the win against Holloway and then he would like to fight UFC legend Georges St. Pierre.

However, White said that the fight was not offered to McGregor as he would struggle to make the weight on such short notice and also because the UFC preferred more time to promote a fight involving Conor McGregor. I don't think too serious. Ferguson and Nurmagomedov had been booked to fight each other four times, yet all four fights have been called off.

Prince Philip to have hip surgery today ahead of royal wedding
The palace says Philip is "progressing satisfactorily at this early stage" and is likely to spend several days in the hospital. Greek-born Philip did not accompany the Queen to church at St George's Chapel on Easter Sunday because of the hip problem.

Kids egg each other on in Easter egg hunts
It took the youngsters one minute and 12 seconds to clear the hospital's front lawn during the 21st-annual Easter egg hunt there. She said one of the main reasons parents signed up for the Easter egg hunt was because it was a family-oriented event.

McGregor's lightweight title is expected to be on the line in UFC 223's main event, which will see the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov take on featherweight champion Max Holloway.

"It's the last fight on earth that I want to make again".

While the details of the event are still cloudy, White blasted McGregor afterward, saying he's not eager to do business with McGregor any time soon.

Details are still breaking on what happened, but expect McGregor to be a major part of the UFC 223 festivities, and this incident to be a major story over the coming days.

Video footage of McGregor's surprise appearance in Brooklyn soon emerged and started doing the rounds on Twitter. A criminal record could very well be in his future, though a jail cell probably not.

"They call and they say he can not make weight, something like this, I'm not sure 100 percent".
