UFC star calls for Conor McGregor to be stripped of featherweight belt

On August 20th, Conor McGregor will compete in his second fight since winning the UFC featherweight championship from Jose Aldo back at UFC 194. This fight, like the last one, will not be at featherweight.

This has led many to wonder whether or not McGregor will actually return to featherweight to defend his belt. With Jose Aldo currently the interim featherweight champ, he is hoping for a rematch with McGregor.

Ahead of UFC 201 this Saturday, welterweight title challenger Tyron Woodley believes McGregor should actually be stripped of his belt. He spoke on his The Morning Wood Show with Deez Nuts:

“You’ve got a repeat fight of Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar which is very similar (to their first fight),” Woodley said on his podcast The Morning Wood Show with Deez Nuts.

“They paid more attention to freaking Conor McGregor in the stands, standing up and attention-hunting, than they did the actual fight.

“These guys should have been fighting for the actual belt. He should be stripped of his belt.

“He’s fighting at 170 lbs for the second time. What other champion do you know that still maintains a belt and in his last fight, he lost?”
