Since his last bout 15 months ago, the UFC had moved on. Khabib Nurmagomedov had demonstrated that he was the man at lightweight, Tony Ferguson showed he was the no.1 contender, and the popular welterweight Jorge Masvidal won a belt that describes him as the “baddest mother f—–” in the game.
But now McGregor is back.
McGregor shouldered Cerrone in the face, bloodied his nose, stunned him with a leg kick, and then went to work.
He sensed danger, he sought the finish, and etched his name further into the history books. He finished Cerrone in 40 seconds with a striking masterclass.
Corrone tried to kick by leg but the counter attack of McGregor was a big shoot for him !!
Before competing in UFC, Conor has fought in several different organizations where he entertained the crowd with his highlight-reel finishes. When Conor was competing in the Immortal Fighting Championship, he squared off against Paddy Doherty(4-9) and that’s when the fans saw the fastest knockout by the Notorious One. The fight sequence was surprisingly similar to the Knockout of Jose Aldo where Conor caught Aldo with left while Aldo was charging towards Conor. Well, Paddy Doherty got the same outcome when he charged towards Conro as he was knocked out in mere 4 seconds into the first round.
