I'm facing whoever the f*** has LW title' – Conor McGregor demands fight for UFC belt on return from broken leg
23rd November 2021

UFC star Conor McGregor has demanded an immediate shot at the lightweight title once he is fully recovered from his broken leg.

The 33-year-old shattered his left tibia and fibula in his trilogy defeat against rival Dustin Poirier in July.

McGregor is set to return to the octagon in 2022, with UFC president Dana White confirming he will be a 'headliner' once he is fully fit.

During an appearance on Pardon My Take, White said: "He's still one of the top ten guys in the world. I mean, he's still one of the top 10 best guys in the world

“It would depend on who he’s fighting and things like that, but yeah, Conor [McGregor] coming back is a headliner."

And McGregor has taken to social media to declare that he will accept nothing less than a world title shot as he aims to win back the lightweight title.

That is despite the Notorious losing three out of his last four MMA fights.

The lightweight belt will be on the line next month when champion Charles Oliveira defends his strap against Poirier at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.


McGregor called for a shot at the winner on Twitter after replying to a story from ESPN about who he should face next.

He said: "Hi lads, here goes.. clicks and the like. Your boss and what not. The Mac. Santy Claus.

"I’m facing whoever the f*** has that LW title next. Deal with it.

"Take off your goggles and mark the trilogy 'unfinished'. Deal with that too. The rest mentioned, after this. Deal. With. It."

Fans were quick to state that McGregor should be realistic as he isn't in a position to demand for a world title.

One user commented: "No way in hell Dana White does that. Zero chance. Give a guy a title shot that is 1-3 at lightweight and hasn't won a fight in the division in 5 years?"

Another messaged: "Entitlement has no business at the highest level in the sport. Maybe win another fight at LW first lmao."

A third added: "How about winning some fights first. Get to the back of the line."

McGregor has already called for a fourth fight against Poirier – insisting he will settle their differences 'once and for all'.

He remarked: "Really nasty elbows and upkicks for sure.

"That or maybe a really annoying blue bottle was around him after the fight, lol.

"Make no mistake they are not looking forward to what is coming. I will be back and it will be settled. Once and for all."
