Conor McGregor asks for “McGregor Belt” release in the UFC ahead of Dustin Poirier Trilogy

Conor McGregor is up to his old social media antics again. In his latest Twitter post, McGregor reposted an old clip of his talking about the “McGregor Belt.”

The former featherweight and lightweight champion took to Twitter to announce his demand for his own personalized belt. Furthermore, he even goes on to mention how he wants the said belt to be decorated.

I suggest rose gold and rubies. Think patek rare,” he says as he states his preference. In a follow-up post, he has also suggested one with “yellow gold and emeralds.” Safe to say, he has sent the Twitter world into a spiral.

I’m open to design suggestions. Let’s link up,” he tweeted as he tagged the UFC. Known for making the headlines one way or another, this one has certainly come out of the blue.

The talk of the belt, however, has garnered up a fair amount of interest. Whilst some people think it’s a great idea and have praised his design choices, there are others who are not impressed.

Will Conor McGregor get his belt?

Conor is no stranger to belts. Having been both, the featherweight and lightweight champion at the same time, he is one of the only fighters to possess two belts at once. Already, he has his name etched into record books and the UFC Hall of Fame.

And rightfully so, Conor’s career has been like no other. His journey from featherweight, to lightweight and even welterweight, has seen his meteoric rise in the world of sport. His boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather drew 4.3 million PPV buys in North America. To add to that, he has headlined five out of the six highest-selling PPV events in UFC history.

Currently, he’ll be looking to win his trilogy with Dustin Poirier. ‘The Notorious’ and ‘The Diamond’ first fought at UFC 178, where McGregor knocked out Poirier in the first round.  However, in the rematch at UFC 257, McGregor was knocked out by Poirier. Now with a rematch date confirmed, he will have his eyes set on the 3rd fight, possibly with a new belt.
