Conor McGregor wants ‘BMF’ title in another unsettling twitter voicenote

UFC superstar Conor McGregor may not possess the coveted BMF belt, but his conviction remains unshaken as he considers himself the uncrowned champion.

The vacant BMF belt found its rightful owner in the form of Justin Gaethje. He secured this title through a remarkable victory over Dustin Poirier via a head-kick knockout during UFC 291.

Gaethje now seems poised to take a step closer to a lightweight title shot. He will likely face the winner of the Islam Makhachev vs Charles Oliveira rematch scheduled for October.

Conor McGregor has not competed inside the Octagon due to a leg injury suffered in 2021. He was supposed to compete against Michael Chandler initially, but McGregor has now intensified his provocations directed at Gaethje.

Although his interest in a showdown with Chandler remains a mixed sentiment, McGregor has affirmed his readiness to step into the arena against any formidable opponent.

McGregor recently conveyed a stern message to Gaethje, advising him not to grow too comfortable with the BMF title. This voice message was accompanied by a backdrop of music.

McGregor’s resurgence in the realm of combat sports is fueled by a burning desire to reclaim his former glory. The setbacks he faced in 2021 has ignited his determination to reestablish himself as a dominant force.

Among these defeats was a notable lightweight title loss to UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov and consecutive losses to Dustin Poirier.

Similarly, Gaethje’s journey has seen its own share of triumphs and trials. He secured victories in consecutive bouts, including a decision win over Rafael Fiziev at UFC 286.

Gaethje is relentlessly pursuing another opportunity at the lightweight title. While setbacks against Nurmagomedov and Oliveira mark his record, Gaethje remains undeterred in his quest for redemption.

While the exact timeline for McGregor’s anticipated return remains shrouded in uncertainty, one thing is unequivocally clear – he wants the BMF championship. The intriguing voice message serves as a potential inception for an onslaught of verbal exchanges between McGregor and Gaethje.
