CONOR MCGREGOR has asked UFC to create a special new ‘McGregor Belt’ for his trilogy with Dustin Poirier – made it gold and rubies.
The Irishman suffered a second-round KO at the hands of ‘The Diamond’ on Fight Island back in January.
But, having won their first fight at 145lbs back in 2014, ‘The Notorious’ will have the opportunity to win the trilogy this summer, at 155lbs.
The fight will headline UFC 264 on July 10 in Las Vegas, and is expected to be one of the most lucrative in the promotion’s history.
Now the 32-year-old once a unique prize to be up for grabs when the pair aim to settle their feud once and for all.
He has called for another belt to be made, like the BMF one that was created for Jorge Masvidal’s and Nate Diaz’s UFC 244 clash, and put on the line as he took to Twitter to make the suggestion.
McGregor wrote: “I feel it’s time to break out this baby for the next fight.
“I ask the UFC to please create The McGregor belt.
“I suggest rose gold and rubies. Think patek rare.”
He then added: “Or yellow gold and emeralds possibly. Might be nice also. I’m open to design suggestions. Let’s link up @ufc #TheMcGregorBelt.”

Currently, the showdown has nothing at stake except for pride and money.
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has vacated the lightweight title following his retirement.
However, Dana White has instead booked the vacant championship fight to be between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler for UFC 262 in May.
