White: Ferguson-Lee Winner Not Guaranteed McGregor
At UFC 215, Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will compete for the interim lightweight championship. The title was created because of McGregor’s absence from the sport, as the 155 lb. champion is obviously busy with his boxing super-fight against Floyd Mayweather.
Interestingly enough, UFC President Dana White said on Thursday that the winner of Lee-Ferguson is not necessarily guaranteed to fight McGregor next.
McGregor has hinted at a third bout with Nate Diaz, which would settle their trilogy as each man defeated the other once in 2016.
