In just his second appearance since 2016, former two-division champion Conor McGregor needed a mere 40 seconds to bust the nose of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and finish him via first-round TKO in their welterweight main event at UFC 246.
Conor McGregor defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via a 40-second TKO in UFC 246’s main event Saturday in Las Vegas.
After the fight, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported Cerrone was taken to a local hospital.
Th.e 31-year-old McGregor was the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts at the same time. But he never defended the featherweight or lightweight belts; both were stripped from him!
“I would love to be the first combatant to fight in that arena,” McGregor said.
In earlier bouts on the main card, Diego Ferreira submitted Anthony Pettis in the second round of a lightweight bout; Aleksei Oleinik submitted Maurice Greene in the second round, Brian Kelleher submitted Ode’ Osbourne in the first round and Holly Holm won a unanimous decision over Raquel Pennington in a rematch of Holm’s UFC debut in 2015
Imagine someone going to the bathroom before the fight and come back to see its over! Honestly, I think a Khabib and McGregor rematch fight would be the biggest fight in UFC history, especially if Khabib beat Ferguson, but I think McGregor has to fight a few more fights and win
