Welterweight contender Stephen Thompson recently appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show and host Ariel Helwani presented Thompson with the Nicest MF’er Title belt:
McGregor, who seemingly always has title aspirations in mind, would take to Twitter to jokingly challenge Thompson for the newly awarded title:
That belt is mine in 2020 motherbuddies!— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) December 16, 2019
It should be noted that Thompson has already defended the Nicest MF’er Title the same amount of times that McGregor has defended his four professional MMA titles combined.
UFC 246 takes place on Saturday, January 18 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
