As reported by MMA Junkie, McGregor is chasing history as he aims to become the first fighter to win three titles in three different weight divisions.

“There’s history to be made. The game is to be shook up again. The triple crown has never been done. It’ll never be done in my lifetime. No one will do this in my lifetime. When I knock Kamaru Usman out at 170, that’ll be three UFC world titles won moving upward with three knockouts.”

Speaking to The Mac Life, McGregor added that he saw no danger in facing The Nigerian Nightmare.

Usman though has found the funny side to McGregor’s challenge and took to Twitter himself to comment on the Irishman’s statements.

He then followed it up with this tweet.

McGregor’s last win came in 2020 when he beat Donald Cerrone. His last two fights, though, saw him defeated twice by Dustin Poirier. During the last fight he suffered a broken leg as well and has been out of action ever since. Usman’s last fight came in November when he defended his title against Colby Covington.

33-year-old UFC legend confirms readiness to buy Premier League side Chelsea for £3billion

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight double-champion Conor McGregor has confirmed his readiness to buy Premier League giants Chelsea, Sports Brief earlier reported.

The 33-year-old Irishman took to his official Twitter page to make it clear that he is ready to spend big and acquire the ownership right of the Stamford Bridge club following Roman Abramovich's confirmation that he is selling.

Abramovich is prepared to do a deal within DAYS if he gets the offer he wants with the threat of UK Government sanctions hanging over his head in the wake of Russia's invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.
