Conor McGregor has finally spoken out after he was stripped of his featherweight title, ending his time as the first fighter hold two UFC belts simultaneously.

The news was announced last week by commentator Jon Anik during the main card broadcast at UFC Melbourne as they explained the reshuffle of the December 10th fight card.

The Notorious has remained quiet about the shocking revelation, until now.

Speaking at a Q&A at The Devenish Bar in Belfast,  the Crumlin native claimed to still be the UFC featherweight champion, despite Jon Anik’s announcement.

“I also have something going on with the UFC, they’re trying to strip me and I was like, ‘Well, I ain’t stripped. I still got that belt, that belt is still at home right now’.” he said.

“I’m still the two-way world champion, someone has to come take that from me.”

The father-to-be went on to say that although he has seen articles online saying he’s no longer the holder of the UFC featherweight title, in his eyes he still holds the title because he has the belt at home.

“I see articles, I see stuff online, but I don’t see the belt not in my presence. The belt is right there, there’s two world titles at my home.

“Eddie (Alvarez) is still unconscious, what do you mean? I only fought last week. Them belts are mine.

“Whatever they want to say, and they can say, ‘Oh we took the belt and now it’s this guy’s belt,’ you can play with those fake belts all you want. Jose was KO’ed, Eddie was KO’ed, you’re looking at the two-weight world champion and that’s it.

“I’ll say to the UFC, and I love their company, you’re fooling nobody, you’re fooling nobody with that.”

We wonder what the UFC will have to say about Conor’s claims..
