Conor McGregor hits back after being stripped of UFC title

Conor McGregor hits back after being stripped of UFC title

"Notorious" ended up in the back of the arena near a van loading fighters to take them to the hotel when a window was shattered on the vehicle, causing cuts to the face of fighter Michael Chiesa. "We have a fight this Saturday and have to make sure we get through that".

McGregor wrote, "You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing ****s". McGregor then went on to defeat Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier, Dennis Siver, Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo via (T) KO.

McGregor on Thursday morning delivered a brief and to-the-point reaction on Twitter before later gatecrashing the UFC 223 media day, sparking chaotic scenes.

Conor McGregor is an Irish UFC fighter who has competed in the featherweight and lightweight divisions, where he because the only fighter in UFC history to hold both titles simultaneously. The only one that's losing a belt here is Conor. "These two (Nurmagomedov and Holloway) are fighting for the belt". "Tony is still the number one contender". White said trash cans, dollies and bike racks were tossed at the bus, one of the objects almost hitting Rose Namajunas, UFC's women's strawweight champ who is slated to fight Joanna Jedrzejczyk on Saturday.

White wasn't done with his somewhat surprising announcements Wednesday, asserting on "UFC Tonight" that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar also will return to the octagon despite his past issues with failed drug tests. "I don't know when, but yes, he is". "You broke window? Why?"

The 29-year-old star did not appear to take the news well.

Conor McGregor apparently isn't too pleased that UFC is stripping him of his lightweight title.

Chiesa's status for UFC 223 is up in the air after suffering multiple lacerations. While the fallout from the incident is ongoing, it's hard to believe this wasn't all a choreographed stunt created to set up McGregor's return to the Octagon.
