Bravo, Conor McGregor. It is hard enough to win a championship in the UFC, but holding on to it. That is saying something. Today marks the 500th day in a row that McGregor has been the UFC lightweight champion.
Mcgregor has 312 days left until he beats BJ Penn’s record of 812 days, but I’m pretty sure he can beat it. All Conor has to do is stay relevant and not be stripped by the UFC. It is a smart move by the UFC because if Conor does come back, they can promote a superfight between him and the interim champ.
With that, he is on his way to the longest running UFC lightweight champion EVER.
