McGregor earned his three-division winner status using a successful streak at featherweight capped off by a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo UFC 194, a group of welterweight bouts against Nate Diaz that watched each guy claim a success, and a light weight title fight triumph against Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205.
