CONOR McGREGOR has been warned he faces being stripped of his UFC lightweight title if he remains out of the octagon until September.

The Irishman is widely regarded as the UFC’s biggest draw but has not fought since defeating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 to add the 155lb crown to his featherweight strap, which he no longer holds.

McGregor decided to dip his toe into the boxing world last year for a lucrative showdown with former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and has intimated to UFC president Dana White that he intends a comeback in the autumn.
