“Conor McGregor to be stripped off his title” – Dana White
UFC president Dana White just revealed his intentions regarding Conor McGregor and his future with UFC. On FOX post-fight show he announced McGregor will be stripped off the world title. As there are other fighters like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson who deserves a fair chance to be in the title picture.
“Conor has said he’s thinking about coming back in September. If he comes back in September, that’s almost two years…that can’t happen.” — @danawhite

Dana said, “There is no doubt that Khabib is the guy to fight..”
“Conor is thinking of coming back in September, but that would be too late for other fighters and they deserve a fair chance”.
“Love Conor, respect Conor, love everything he’s done for this company. The belt would have to move on.”
“We are working hard on the upcoming fight of Khabib vs Tony”
“If Conor returns he would be given a fair chance to win the title back again”
The only way Conor McGregor can stop this is by returning to UFC by March. If not then this would be the second time Connor McGregor would get stripped off his championship. The only fighter above him would be Jon Jones who has been stripped three times.
