Wow what a contest, well if you can even call it that! Conor McGregor once again getting the job done with an early round knockout! I was amazed how little of a fight Alvarez put up against him, bar a few body shots Conor McGregor took home the lightweight title practically unscathed!
A stunning combination of hits in the second round from McGregor put Alvarez out of his misery. The way things started off in the first round I thought it would have been yet another first round knockout for ‘Mystic Mac’. Having been knocked down three times in the first round, it was only a matter of time until Conor McGregor knocked Alvarez out and lifted the lightweight belt.
The big question now is who is McGregor going to fight next? Perhaps Nate Diaz, the fight everyone around the world seems to want to split their 1-1 record they now have following their fight earlier this year. Or maybe he will fight Khabib Nurmagomedov who has seemingly rose to prominence of late and following his recent trash talking of McGregor, calling him a ‘chicken’, maybe McGregor will be looking to silence him? Or perhaps Conor will take some time away from the Octagon, it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise considering his long term partner announced that she was pregnant following his domination of Alvarez on Saturday night. Whoever McGregor fights next, he will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the all-time greats.
