UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has some big demands for his return to the Octagon.
During an interview prior to the release of his documentary, McGregor claimed he would not be returning to the UFC unless he gets ownership stakes in the company.
“They’ve got to entice me now because I came from a billion dollar fight,” McGregor said.
“They’ve got to entice me. I want equity. I want ownership. I want to be a true partner, similar in the way I was in the Floyd fight. I was a promoter and I was a fighter, and that must continue for me to continue.”
McGregor (21-3) last appeared inside of the Octagon at UFC 205 last November when he secured the lightweight title with a dominant TKO victory over Eddie Alvarez in the second round.
Following the bout, McGregor took some time off for the birth of his first child and a foray into boxing against Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor came out on the wrong side of a TKO in the fight, but padded his pockets and is now looking for the same when he returns to mixed martial arts.
There is no word on who McGregor would face in his return, but a title unification bout with Tony Ferguson is the most appealing matchup available.
