Such is the level of his confidence, Conor McGregor appears to be preparing for life as a dual-weight UFC champion before he even enters the octagon against Rafael Dos Anjos on March 5.
The Crumlin fighter sent a series of tweets this afternoon which strongly suggest that he is already looking beyond his lightweight title fight at the MGM Grand next month.

Many observers believe the 27-year-old is referring to UFC 200, in what will be the biggest night in the history of the company so far, and the possibility that he could face Robbie Lawler for the welterweight crown.
McGregor has also said that he could envisage himself holding three belts simultaneously before the end of 2016 and doing it at UFC 200 would be huge.
McGregor ended by saying that he has already inducted himself into the UFC hall of fame.
