There’s a lot on the line for Conor McGregor in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier this summer and the Irishman appears ready to up the stakes even more.

McGregor was the first-ever UFC champion to simultaneously hold two divisional titles in the promotion, the lightweight and featherweight belts. And even though he doesn’t have a title right now, he seemingly wants to compete for two more belts on July 10 at UFC 264.

In a tweet on Friday, McGregor challenged the UFC to have two belts up for grabs against “The Diamond.”

According to “Notorious,” he is currently creating the “McGregor Belt.” And he also plans to have another title, the “Richest Motherf*****” belt.

On Friday, McGregor tweeted, “Let’s do two belts actually @ufc. Champ Champ always does two. We’ve got ‘The McGregor Belt’ currently in creation, and now we’ve got the all new ‘RMF’ belt. ‘The Richest Motherf***** Belt’. This way we can put both the rubies and the emeralds to good use.”

“Notorious” then followed up the tweet by writing, “Secretary, get me Harry Winston on the phone.” Winston was a famed American jeweler and founder of his own jewelry company.

McGregor is scheduled to fight Poirier in the main event of UFC 264 on July 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be the third time that these two fighters meet, splitting their first two bouts 1-1.
