Two belts and shares in the company.

So far so good
For weeks we heard that Conor McGregor had a major announcement following his title fight at UFC 205.
McGregor dispatched of lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez to become the first ever simultaneous two-division champion in the promotions history. At the post fight press conference following the victory McGregor filled the world in on his major announcement. He was looking for equity in the company before he would fight again.
Nobody could have seen that coming…Unless they had remembered or dug up this beauty of a tweet from 2014. We are yet to see if McGregor will receive shares in the company, but it’s unbelievable that he called this two years before and and we are on the brink of it becoming a reality.
