Two belts for McGregor, and it was all too easy. He coasted to a second round TKO of Eddie Alvarez, and having characteristically floored Alvarez with his trademark left-jab, he ended the fight in typical McGregor fashion: roaring obscenities into a microphone while draped in a tricolour.
McGregor began his interview with Joe Rogan by roaring "where's my fucking belt", owing to the considerable cock-up of the UFC not having his featherweight belt to hand for the mother of all photo opportunities. He then took aim at the UFC, saying that he'll apologise to nobody, and peppered most of his other points with f-bombs, meaning that, were said interview to be censored, it would be extremely difficult to work out what he was saying.
That's exactly what BT Sport did, however. Granted, it was around 6.35am when the interview was conducted, but given the level of violence that preceded it, most fight fans struggled to comprehend the level of offence taken at a few expletives.
