Shortly after Kamaru Usman retained his welterweight title by knocking out Colby Covington at UFC 245, Conor McGregor took to social media.
While he didn’t directly point at Usman, he did issue a tweet saying 145, 155 and 170, referencing all three weight classes he’s fought or will fight.
Interestingly enough, Conor has held the belt at 145 and 155, and just needs 170 for the trifecta.
145. 155. 170.

But if he’s seeking a title fight at 170, “The Nigerian Nightmare” has a warning for him.
“He must want to die,” he said when speaking to TMZ Sports.
“You saw what Khabib did to him. Like, oh my god. It wouldn’t even be fair if I fought Conor.”
“Much respect to Conor for what he’s done for this sport and transcended it, but nah, this is not what you want.”
“Sit down, little man! Sit down! Learn to walk before you can run because I would hurt that guy.”
Conor will return at 170 pounds on Jan, 18 to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 (poster here), but has dreams of lightweight gold after that.
Nevertheless, don’t count out McGregor looking for the 170 pound title down the road.
Meanwhile, Usman broke Colby’s jaw during his title win:
