Conor McGregor follows up title win by announcing baby on the way

Conor McGregor follows up title win by announcing baby on the way

"They have got to come talk to me now". I've earned this. Biggest gate. I want what I've earned. It was McGregor, though, who once again dropped Alvarez with a shot along the cage.

He told challengers at both weights: "I'm going to strap one belt on one shoulder, the other belt on the other shoulder, and you'll need an army to get them off me". I'm gonna enjoy this moment.

That's because, in a post-match interview, "The Notorious" confirmed he will now take a break from UFC after revealing he and wife Dee Devlin are expecting their first child in May 2017.

The 32-year-old Alvarez had won the title from Rafael Dos Anjos back in July and after McGregor was done avenging his only UFC defeat to Nate Diaz, he immediately set his sights on taking that second belt.

After the fight, McGregor said, "I just want to say from the bottom of my heart".

Poppy row: Royal British Legion urges Federation Internationale de Football Association to rethink ban
Others agree with Fifa's decision, saying the poppy no longer represents remembrance in the way it was intended. In Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the poppy is regarded by some as a political symbol.


"Who owns the company now?"

McGregor, after scoring yet another lovely TKO at UFC 205 on Saturday, said afterward that he has spent enough time playing games, it's time for the real money to come rolling in. If you want me to stick around and you want me to keep doing what I'm doing, let's talk. That's all I know. He destroyed Eddie Alvarez to become the first ever simultaneous two-division champion in UFC history. McGregor specifically called out Conan O'Brien - yes, that Conan O'Brien - and said that if he gets a share, McGregor should be able to get one as well.

"I've been happy to continue doing what I'm doing, [but] I feel I've outworn the previous contract", McGregor added. Santa Claus is back, you know what I mean? "I've got a family on the way, I've got a kid on the way, and I'm coming for mine now". A number of celebrities and professional athletes now have a stake in the company, and McGregor believes he deserves a piece of the lucrative pie he's helped to create.

McGregor's rapid rise to fame has in part helped the company run by Dana White grow into a multi-billion pound empire.
