CM Punk to get another shot in UFC

Conor McGregor

- As noted earlier today, Dana White spoke with the New York Post and made a comment about the possibility of Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC.

McGregor added the 155-pound belt to his featherweight title with a historic victory over Eddie Alvarez in November 2016, but has not stepped foot in the octagon since, having pursued a money-spinning cross-combat bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr a year ago.

Recently the UFC announced that Nurmagomedov will battle interim lightweight champ, Tony Ferguson, at UFC 223 on April 7th.

"They stripped (Conor's) belt at lightweight, they stripped his featherweight belt". I don't understand why you media people keep talking like, 'did you strip him or not?'. "Of course UFC stripped him".

"Now, he has to deserve a title shot".

Now, at the end of the day, if Nurmagomedov does defeat Ferguson, and McGregor wants to fight the vaunted grappler, this fight will happen. "I'm going to tell him 'hey, go in line'".

GETTYDana White has once again suggested that Conor Mc Gregor could be stripped of the UFC LW title

When Ferguson and Khabib meet inside the Octagon in roughly two-and-a-half months time, this will be the fourth time in which these two have been booked for a fight after previous fights were booked for 2015, 2016, and 2017.

White refused to directly answer questions about McGregor's champion status and later claimed, "It's an undisputed title fight", but did not elaborate on what that meant for McGregor.

Kavanagh says that no matter what, it is McGregor who is the real UFC Lightweight Champion in the end.

"I would see a high likelihood of one of them pulling out before the fight happens", he continued. "But let's assume both get through the training camps, both are healthy and the fight happens and it's five rounds".
