Wednesday at the UFC 197 Press Conference Conor McGregor put UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on blast for nearly 45 minutes.

McGregor also touched upon a variety of topics including why he’s fighting RDA instead of Frankie Edgar, his hopes of claiming the UFC welterweight championship by the end of 2016, and more.

One thing that caught McGregor’s attention was that his featherweight championship belt was left out of the UFC 197 poster.

“This is a super fight. I look upon that poster, I see myself tucked in the back there. That’s what I just noticed. Where is my damn belt?” McGregor asked during the press conference. “Where are all these historic images? These are posters that will be looked back on long after it’s all said and done and you’ve got to look back on that absolute garbage.”

“I think I might have to go into that department because they must be getting comfortable in that poster department. They wanna get their act together and start doing their damn job,” he continued. “He fought on free TV. He’s never brought a dime to the company, he’s never made a dime, yet there he is sitting on the front of my poster.”

The reason McGregor’s featherweight belt was left off the poster is because his belt isn’t on the line at the event, just dos Anjos’ lightweight championship.
