After weeks of speculation running rampant about his “bombshell announcement” post-UFC 205, McGregor finally addressed it at the post-fight press conference. “There’s a few bombshells I wanted to hit, but then it was like ‘do I do it or don’t do it?'” he said, before then going forward with announcing them. “One announcement, I’m going to be a daddy early next year,” McGregor said. “I’m crapping me jocks, I’m not going to lie. I don’t even know what way to take it.”
In addition to being a new father soon, McGregor demanded the UFC give him what he feels he has earned. “So where’s my share? Where’s my equity?” McGregor said. “If I’m the one that’s bringing this, they’ve got to come talk to me now, that’s all I know. I’ve got both belts, a chunk of money, a little family on the way. You want me to stick around, you want me to keep doing what I’m doing, let’s talk, but I want ownership. I want an equal share. I want what I deserve, what I’ve earned.”
McGregor broke many records last night and is aware of his leverage and he made that known. “Whoever runs this who [expletive] now has got to come to me and give me the real slice cause that’s what I’ve earned. I’ve earned this. Biggest gate. Biggest everything.”
With the victory McGregor improves to 21-3 and is now the Featherweight Champion and Lightweight Champion.
