Conor McGregor, who in November 2016 became the first UFC fighter to hold titles in two weight divisions simultaneously, is now without a title having surrendered the 155lb championship to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
The featherweight championship he won when he beat Jose Aldo in December 2015 was stripped by the UFC for McGregor’s inactivity.
And with McGregor almost certain to never compete at 145lbs again, it would seem that his sights are set on recapturing the championship he lost to Khabib.
Nurmagomedov and McGregor must wait for the late January decision from the Nevada State Athletic Commission to determine when they are both eligible to compete again.
Both fighters are currently awaiting word from their role in the post-fight melee at UFC 229 which was sparked when Nurmagomedov attacked McGregor’s corner after the fight ended.
Judging by McGregor latest tweet, though, he appears confident that he will be back on int the octagon soon.

Conor has made it clear that he wants to get back in the octagon as soon as is possible but both he and Khabib, as well as the growing list of contenders in the UFC’s lightweight fold, must await the ruling by the NSAC before any fight is mapped out.
Until then we’ll have to watch him do his thing on Social Media.
