McGregor Blasts UFC After Being Stripped of Lightweight Title

Move aside Conor Nurmagomedov takes UFC’s 155-pound crown

Conor McGregor has responded in typically no-nonsense style to the news that he is to be stripped of his UFC lightweight title.

Wednesday during a pre-fight press conference for UFC 223, UFC president Dana White was quoted as saying it would be great if Conor McGregor was in Brooklyn for the week. Shortly after, an object cracks the windshield of one of the vehicles.

Dana White says once the bell rings between Khabib and Max Holloway at UFC 223, Conor McGregor doesn't have a title. Adding insult to injury, Ferguson will also be stripped of his interim belt, White told ESPN on Sunday.

"You's'll [sic] strip me of nothing you's do nothing c****", he posted on his Twitter account.

"There is a warrant out for McGregor's arrest".

It appears McGregor was going after Khabib.

Lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa suffered cuts to his face when the bus window shattered and his status for Saturday's fight is in question.

White also says Rose Namajunas was also on the bus and was very shaken up in the incident - she nearly broke her hand.

McGregor has not been too active on social media of late but did surface, earlier in the week, to take a pop at Ferguson, who pulled out of his planned bout with Nurmagomedov at late notice.

In his most recent outing at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in NY, he defeated Eddie Alvarez via TKO to claim the UFC lightweight championship in a Performance of the Night effort. The company then announces that Aldo will be the unified champion, with Holloway fighting Anthony Pettis for an interim featherweight belt at UFC 206 in Toronto - again, this is all very confusing.

Prior to Thursday, White had said McGregor would "100 percent" return to UFC in 2018.

Nurmagomedov told TMZ Sports: "My first option when Tony's out, I tell, 'Hey, where's Conor?"
