What a week in the UFC.
Daniel Cormier is out of UFC 206 due to injury, which has led to a sequence of interesting events in the UFC.
We had a feeling what followed would happen eventually, and the time has finally come – Conor McGregor has “relinquished” his featherweight title, making Jose Aldo the undisputed champion. Rumors are floating that McGregor did not exactly agree to this, so what we are gathering here is that McGregor was quite frankly stripped of his title. Why? Well, we can’t leave UFC 206 without a title fight. And for what it’s worth, the UFC had every right to do things this way.
Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis will now be headlining UFC 206 to compete for the interim featherweight title. The winner will face Jose Aldo in 2017 for a unified belt.
