Two-belt champion McGregor wants his share

MMA: Conor McGregor has two UFC world championship titles and plenty of prizemoney, but he wants more.

After claiming the world lightweight title - with a second-round knockout of Eddie Alvarez at New York's Madison Square Garden in UFC 205 - to go with his featherweight belt, the Irishman demanded a share in the company that owns UFC.

"People have shares in the company, celebrities... Conan O'Brien owns the UFC nowadays, so where's my share? Where's my equity?” he said.

"If I'm the one that's bringing this, they've gotta come talk to me now.

"I've got both belts, a chunk of money, a little family on the way. You want me to stick around, you want me to keep doing what I'm doing, let's talk.

"But I want the ownership now. I want equal share. I want what I earned.”

McGregor dismissed the idea he may challenge for the welterweight title.

"Whoever runs this whole s**t has to come to me and give me the real slice, because that's what I've earned. I've earned this. Biggest gate. Biggest everything.”
