Current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor has a chance to make history this November at UFC 205 if he is able to defeat UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez. According to UFC President Dana White, he will not be a double champion for long.
White appeared on this past weeks’ edition of UFC Tonight, and he talked about what would happen if McGregor was successful at UFC 205 in his bid to capture two championships.
“If he wins, he’ll hold two belts,” White said. “Then he’ll decide which one he wants to give back to me. He can’t hold both. He’ll have accomplished this. Then he’ll have to figure out which one he wants to give up. He can’t hold up two divisions.”
McGregor, at the UFC 205 Press Conference, stated that it would take an army to get both belts off of him because he will not give up either title.
“I’m going to wrap one on one shoulder, I’m going to wrap the other on the other shoulder, and you’re going to need a (expletive) army to come take them belts off me. They’re going to have to gather an army to try to take one of them off me. And that’s telling it straight. One’s going to be there, one’s going to be there, and I’m going to be picking and choosing who I want to destroy next,” McGregor said.
Although McGregor has yet to achieve the status of a double champion, it seems that if he does pull off the history making moment, then Dana White may want to get that army ready.
