It's only been a few days since Conor McGregor became a dual UFC champion, as he now holds the UFC Lightweight Title and UFC Featherweight Title, but there are already questions in regards to who he'll fight next.
"He's fought once in eight years," McGregor said at the UFC post-fight presser in regards to Khabib Nurmagomedov. "He ain't fight too frequent for my liking. For me to commit to something like that, I need to see solid proof that people are gonna show up and he's a consistent pull-out merchant. He had a good performance tonight. Fair play to him. I need to see active. I need to see activity. I need to see consistency. I need to see me. If you want me to come and change your life, if you want me to come pick you, you better have some damn reasons for me to do that."
While being a double champion is a historical moment, McGregor has an interest in becoming a triple champion and has his eyes set on a possible fight with UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley.
"I'm sure he would (sign a contract for a fight)," McGregor said. "I'm sure he f*cking would. They all would. Maybe that's a sign of things to come, I feel good at all of them. I'm dominating them. I own the featherweight division. I'm dominating the 155 now. At 170? I have no problem going to 170. I'm sizing them up all week saying, ‘They're not on my level, either.'"
If McGregor were to become a triple champion in the UFC down the line, he would become the first triple champion in UFC history and would be the first fighter in UFC history to win a belt in three different weight classes.
