Conor McGregor tells UFC he wants 'The McGregor Belt' and 'The Richest Motherf***** Belt' on the line for Poirier fight
CONOR MCGREGOR has called for the UFC to make TWO belts in his honour ahead of his summer return to the octagon.
The UFC's poster boy has long considered himself to be the biggest entity in the history of mixed martial arts.
And The Notorious wants the promotion to make two belts to commemorate his global and financial impact on the sport.
Early on Saturday morning, he tweeted: "Let's do two belts, actually. Champ Champ always does two.
'We've got "The McGregor Belt" currently in creation, and now we've got the all-new "RMF" belt.
'"The Richest Motherf* Belt". This way we can put both the rubies and the emeralds to good use."
McGregor called for the UFC to make a title in his honour at the start of the month, tweeting: “I feel it’s time to break out this baby for the next fight.
“I ask the UFC to please create The McGregor belt. I suggest rose gold and rubies. Think patek rare.”
McGregor, 32, is currently gearing up for a blockbuster trilogy fight with former featherweight rival Dustin Poirier, which was officially announced this week.
The Irishman will renew his rivalry with the former interim lightweight champion in July in the main event of UFC 264 in Las Vegas.
Poirier vs McGregor III will take place in front of a capacity crowd at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.
McGregor, the UFC's first simultaneous two-division champion, suffered a devastating second-round KO loss to The Diamond in January at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi.
The Dubliner is relishing his rubber match with the American, telling ESPN on Wednesday: "I signed my bout agreement this morning.
"I'm going to rip the game a new a**hole July 10. The Mac is back in Sin City! Full house!"
McGregor, who boasts a record of 22 wins and five defeats, has been urged to get out of his comfort zone in preparation for the series decider.
And UFC commentator Joe Rogan reckons Mystic Mac could benefit from having a new set of eyes help oversee his upcoming training camp.
During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, he said: "I think someone from the outside needs to look at what you're doing.
"You can't look at it objectively yourself.
"You need someone analysing, someone who you implicitly trust."
Rogan added: "Especially when you have a big ego like Conor. For good reasons. He's very confident.
"But it's because of his success and because of his ability. He understands what he's capable of.
"But I don't think that's enough."
