Conor McGregor is now the featherweight champion and the lightweight champion.

He holds two UFC belts and he's now demanding shares in the company. A scenario that would be unpredictable back in 2014. Well, unless you are Notorious that is.

Yes, McGregor himself sent out a tweet on his official Twitter account back in June 2014, stating that in the future, he will hold two belts and have shares in the company.

Well, fast forward two years and here we are.

Back in 2015, McGregor beat Chad Mendes to win the interim UFC featherweight championship, and five months later, he defeated Jose Aldo, winning and unifying the UFC featherweight championship.

Skip forward almost a year and McGregor was set to fight American Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship.

His press conference game was on point and his octagon performance was just as strong. A second round knockout following a deadly four-punch combo saw the Irishman win his second belt in UFC and become a two-time champion.

It is the first time in UFC history that a fighter has held two belts at the same time from different weights, and no surprise that McGregor is the man to do so.

Notorious has never been shy of confidence or self-belief, and he's proven that once more by highlighting the tweet he sent out back in 2014.

June 5, McGregor posted: "Two belts and shares in the company."

November 14, McGregor quoted that initial tweet and attached it with the message: "2014 I called this #DoubtMeNow"

He really is Mystic Mac
