Conor McGregor demands UFC ownership stake
Following his big win last night, Conor McGregor threatened to leave the UFC if he isn't given an ownership stake in the company.
To be fair the dude did break every UFC sales record at UFC 205.
"If you want to come at me, if you want me to stick around and help service that debt and continue to push the company, bring me on board — for real,” McGregor said at the post-fight press conference. “I need to be set for life for this. If you want me to be truly on on board, then I need to be all-in on this proper, as an owner, and have an equity stake in the company. That’s what I’m looking for.”
“They’ve got to come talk to me now,” “Both belts. Money. I want the ownership now. If we’re going to keep doing this, let’s talk, but I want an equal share. I want what I’ve deserved, what I’ve earned.”
McGregor's going to be taking some time off, focusing on his pregnant girlfriend but it could well be a longer break if UFC don't play ball and give him the contract he thinks he deserves.
