    No, you'll fail through being unable to spell 5-letter words

    BJ was the only other fighter the UFC allowed to do what Conor is attempting.

    Might have been others had the UFC let them.

    i assume you mean attempt to hold 2 belts at the same time?

    because kenny florian has had ufc title fights in 2 different weight classes but failed to win a belt.

    however, as already mentioned, bj penn failed in his attempt to hold 2 simultaneously.

    Most recently, Lyoto Machida attempted to win the Middleweight belt, having already held the Light Heavyweight belt. Not sure why no one else has remembered this.

    Edit: Not sure if we're talking about challenging while being champ in another weight class. If so, only BJ Penn. Couture has had belts for Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight, but never at the same time.

    Wouldn't BJ have had to relinquish his belt had he won?

    Racism is alive and well. Ever notice Dana's lap dogs are all blonde? McGaygor, Sage, PVZ, Rousey...

    I think Konnyr has a really good chance to pull it off.
