UFC are preparing to strip Conor McGregor of his lightweight title

Either way, it certainly appears that McGregor's time as lightweight champion may be limited if he doesn't book his next fight in the UFC sooner rather than later.

The UFC lightweight division is just about ready to move on without Conor McGregor.

If that comes to pass, White says the UFC would "absolutely" have to strip McGregor of his lightweight title that he won in November 2016 and still hasn't defended. Justin Gaethje and Kevin Lee have emerged as legitimate contenders and Khabib Nurmagomedov has improved his pristine professional record to 25-0.

UFC president Dana White broke down his reaction to last night's (Sun., January 14, 2017) UFC Fight Night 124 from St. Louis during the post-fight show on FOX Sports 1, but the discussion not surprisingly shifted to the messy lightweight title landscape as champion Conor McGregor sits on the bench with no return in view. "He came back, he looks wonderful, he made weight easily, he was on weight the week of the fight". If "the Notorious" still holds the belt by late-February, he will have surpassed Anthony Pettis' record of still holding the belt after 462 days without defending it.

"If (McGregor) comes back in September, that's nearly two years (since his last MMA fight)".

"Here's my prediction: My prediction is Conor [McGregor] doesn't fight for a while", he said on a recent episode of his podcast. "It's not fair to everybody else". "Love Conor, respect Conor, love everything that he's done for this company". Everybody knows that. I say that all the time, (but) the belt would have to move on.

If Ferguson and Nurmagomedov do lock horns, the big question is whether or not it will be for the interim lightweight title, or if the UFC will strip the long absent McGregor and award the Ferguson-Nurmagomedov victor the undisputed title.

While it's still possible that Tony Ferguson will be booked for a massive, title-unifying showdown with Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov has posted similar messages on social media recently. "We're working on that fight now and, if and when Conor comes back, he would get the first crack at the title".
