Conor McGregor ranks himself second in 'GOAT' UFC fighters list

McGregor last fought in January, defeating Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

McGregor, who has a 22-4 record in the UFC, claims his "champion status" in two divisions - featherweight and lightweight - is enough to secure him second place behind former middleweight champion Silva.
"My array of finishes, across 3 divisions, with champion status in 2, I'm No.2. If not tied one.
