Now, McGregor has said one more such thing, which is bound to gather attention.

The Conor McGregor belt?

McGregor has now talked about how he should have his own belt. During an interview, McGregor was talking about title shots and weight divisions.

He then suddenly went in a different direction and declared that he should have a belt of his own, irrespective of any weight or division.

“It doesn’t matter what weight divisions or anything or even what belt is on the line, because really I should create my own belt.

One should have a certain level of confidence to say such things, and McGregor has repeatedly proven that he has loads of it.

I am in myself, my own belt. It doesn’t matter weight; it doesn’t matter if it’s the featherweight, the lightweight, the welterweight. It’s the McGregor belt, so that’s it, I’m fighting for my own belt,” He said.

McGregor even talks about how he wants the belt to be, and his description of the belt seems to match his boisterous personality.

“I I feel it’s time to break out this baby for the next fight. I ask the UFC to please create The McGregor belt. I suggest rose gold and rubies. Think patek rare.”
