Conor McGregor went into UFC 202 last month with question marks over his head as the top star in the UFC, but left with his reputation back to where it was before his UFC 196 loss to Nate Diaz.
The Notorious still holds the UFC featherweight championship and there has been a whole host of talk about him potentially having to drop that title.
However, it was confirmed yesterday that won't be happening by UFC president Dana White, but that isn't the end of things.

"He's not going to get stripped. He's going to make a decision," White told NBC Sports Radio recently.
It seems that McGregor has a decision to make: fight Jose Aldo in a defense of the featherweight title, or give it up to take on someone else. That appears to be what Dana White is saying.
That decision will not include a third fight against Nate Diaz, despite how much both fighters want it to happen after the series was leveled at 1-1. White confirmed that.
"[McGregor] knows the Nate Diaz fight isn't the fight to make right now."
McGregor didn't seem so happy with the prospect of being stripped of his title, claiming that the featherweight division would be buried if it was taken away from him - seeing as it only took him 13 seconds to knock out the number one contender.
White backtracked from that and offered the Eddie Alvarez fight for the 155lbs title, which could be very interesting to McGregor.
The Irishman notably wants to be a two-weight champion in the UFC - just like he was in Cage Warriors, but that looks unlikely now.
