Conor McGregor Urges ONE Championship To Sign The UFC’s 125-Pound Division

With the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the process
of apparently dismantling its flyweight division in the wake
of longtime champion Demetrious
Johnson
being released to sign with One Championship, one perhaps unexpected voice
has spoken up.

Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champ Conor
McGregor
send out a tweet on Thursday directed at ONE CEO
Chatri Sityodtong, urging the Singapore-based promotion to sign the
rest of the UFC’s flyweights along with Johnson. McGregor
wrote:

“You must now take all the 125lbers that have been let go, Chatri.
You talk all of this martial art and respect talk, yet your greed
has directly cost more than half a fighting division its chance to
earn income for their family. Have respect [Chatri Sityodtong].
Sign the division.”

With Johnson’s departure, the UFC’s flyweight division is emptying quickly, with numerous 125-pounders
either announcing their release, or their impending move to
bantamweight.
