Helwani: The UFC ‘epically botched’ McGregor’s belt drop

On The MMA Hour Helwani criticises the UFC’s handling of the removal of McGregor’s belt. They botched it. They botched it epically. They botched it because if you’re going to go ahead and strip Conor, then Holloway /Pettis needs to be for the real belt, and you say to Jose Aldo that you’re getting the first crack […]

Knight: McGregor ‘has no heart’
