Conor McGregor Makes History, Wants Equity In UFC

Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor made history at UFC 205 on Saturday night after winning the UFC Lightweight Championship from Eddie Alvarez. The win made him the first ever UFC fighter to hold multiple titles in different weight classes simultaneously.

He joins BJ Penn (Welterweight Championship and Lightweight Championship) and Randy Couture (Heavyweight Championship, Light Heavyweight Championship) to hold multiple titles in the UFC.

McGregor knows his worth and made it clear in the post-fight press conference:

"They've got to come talk to me now," McGregor said. "Both belts. Money. I want the ownership now. If we're going to keep doing this, let's talk, but I want an equal share. I want what I've deserved, what I've earned.”

And a demand for equity:

"I've earned something," McGregor said. "I've earned, I mean, who owns the company now? There's people who have shares in the company, celebrities, Conan O'Brien owns the UFC now, so, where's my share? Where's my equity? I'm the one that's banking this.”
