McGregor made history earlier this month by becoming the first man to simultaneously hold two UFC titles after downing Eddie Alvarez to add the promotion’s lightweight title to a trophy case that already held the featherweight title, as well.

This past weekend, UFC officials announced that McGregor had relinquished his 145-pound title, with interim champ Jose Aldo accepting undisputed status, and top contenders Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis battling for an interim title at UFC 206.
