At the Go Big press conference in September, featherweight Conor McGregor told every fighter on the stage that he is the money fight in the UFC. At UFC on FOX 17 in Orlando, one by one fighters called him out and added validity to that claim just a week after he knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds.
First Charles Oliveira threw his hat in the ring though he is nowhere close to being within reach of a title shot against McGregor. Then Nate Diaz called out McGregor, though no one heard it because his expletive-laced rant was almost entirely censored.

And finally, Rafael Dos Anjos issued a warning to McGregor about any decision to move up and said he would welcome the featherweight champion.
After the event was all said and done, McGregor responded to every fighter calling him out in one epic tweet.
You'd have to think fighters calling McGregor out at the rate they were at UFC on FOX 17 is exactly what he wants. That it adds validity to his claims of being the money fight in the UFC.
He certainly doesn't seemed to be bothered by it, and as he said after UFC 194, he likes having options.
