Some guy was posting about how he still considers Jones and McGregor the champs, and as much as I dislike it, it's truth when you're speaking about the Lineal titles. In MMA this concept hasn't carried as much weight as in Boxing, but the idea of a Lineal Championship is that it can only be won by beating the Champion who had it before you. Conor won both the Featherweight and Lightweight Titles and never lost them. They were stripped, and he's no longer the divisional champion. But he is still a Two-Division Lineal Champion going into this match with Khabib. Edit: Conor is the only person in UFC History to hold MMA Lineal Championships in two divisions simultaneously. Will have to check into Dan Henderson, pretty sure the Pride titles would have been considered the Lineal ones at the time.
