Conor McGregor is harping over the time of his knockout victory over Jose Aldo from 2015.
“The Notorious” took to Twitter recently and made the case that his knockout of “Scarface” took just 12 seconds – not the official 13 that is currently in the record books. Here’s what the recently-retired Irishman had to say on Twitter:
“It was 12! Look at this gif closely everyone and watch the clock. Referee Big John steps in at 4.48 seconds of the very first round. That’s 12 seconds! I demand it corrected before anymore talks commence. And yes that’s right, I smoked that boy in a gif. Now pass me my whiskey.”
McGregor knocked out Aldo in the main event of UFC 194 back in 2015. The victory propelled him into a completely different tier of superstardom in mixed martial arts. “Mystic Mac” became the first man to defeat Aldo in over a decade. The win also earned McGregor the record for fastest finish in UFC title fight history.
He then went on to capture the lightweight championship, becoming the first-ever dual weight champion in promotion history. At the moment, McGregor claims he is retired from MMA after failing to come to terms on a new deal for his return to the Octagon. However, with a recent sexual assault allegation now looming, a return to the cage anytime soon seems unlikely.
