Irish superstar Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA) has taken over the sport of mixed martial arts by becoming the first ever fighter to hold titles in two different weight classes simultaneously.
“Mystic Mac” earned his second title, the UFC lightweight championship, earlier this month in the main event of UFC 205 in New York when he scored a first-round knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez.
McGregor was able to utilize his famous left hand to drop Alvarez on multiple occasions which eventually resulted in a first-round stoppage.
The brash Irish fighter became the UFC’s undisputed featherweight champion at UFC 194 in December of 2015, when he scored a shocking 13-second knockout victory over former division kingpin Jose Aldo.
Amazingly, Conor’s victory over Aldo was not the quickest finish of his illustrious career, as “Notorious” had already picked up a 4-second knockout victory in 2011.
In the above video, you can watch Conor McGregor make quick work of Paddy Doherty at the Immortal Fighting Championship 4 event from April of 2011.
Conor is able to land his heavy left hand sending Doherty crashing to the canvas just seconds in to the contest.
Conor McGregor has only two decision wins during his professional career, as 19 of his 21 victories have come by way of stoppage, 18 by knockout/TKO and 1 by way of submission.
Following his historic victory at UFC 205, “Mystic Mac” announced that he would soon be a father and subsequently would be taking some time off away from the sport.
UFC President Dana White is hoping to have McGregor back in the octagon in May of 2017.
