Conor McGregor stripped of Featherweight title

As expected, Conor McGregor has been stripped of his UFC featherweight championship. The decision was made by the UFC due to a new main event at UFC 206.

The change-up is due to the injury sustained by Daniel Cormier, which means that the Max Holloway vs. Anthony Pettis fight is now the headliner for the interim featherweight title.

Conor McGregor remains the lightweight champion, and now Jose Aldo will become the new 145-pound champion.

It’s no surprise that this has happened really, as McGregor hasn’t defended the featherweight title since he won it at UFC 194 just under a year ago.

Sadly this means Conor can’t continue to hold both belts on each shoulder anymore.
