When the UFC announced that interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson would be fighting number one contender Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223, the fans immediately began to inquire about Conor McGregor. ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor has been holding the lightweight strap since November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the first simultaneous dual-division champion.

White announced at the press conference prior to UFC 220 that the fight between Ferguson and Nurmagomedov will be for the “real belt” without mentioning what will happen with McGregor. White is now ready to give some details regarding the champion’s position.

“That’s exactly right. As soon as one punch is thrown, it’s on for the full title and it’s only fair,” White said to The LA Times. “They’ve both worked their way up to No. 1 and No. 2. They deserve a shot.”

McGregor has not defended his belt since winning it. First, he took some time with family to welcome his first son, then he went on to a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather last summer. The time away from the sport has been too much for the UFC to wait. They are now ready to move on without McGregor.

“This is good news for the fans,” White said. “I always hear about, ‘What will you do if this guy leaves?’ This is a sport first. People leave, they’ve made money and moved on. It happens.”

If McGregor does finally return to the UFC in the future White assures that he will get an immediate title shot at the winner of Ferguson and Nurmagomedov.

“Conor does want the belt, he does want to be the champion, but he doesn’t want to defend it,” White said. “I’d love to see him fight the winner of Ferguson-Khabib next.”
