Video: Conor McGregor's devastating one-punch KO to win lightweight title at Cage Warriors 51
In case you missed his spectacular win over Ivan Buchinger, here’s how Ireland’s Conor McGregor became a double world title holder.
Our MMA man Fergus Ryan spoke to Conor McGregor just before his Cage Warriors 51 bout and came away pretty convinced that the Irish fighter was the real deal. And McGregor promised as his parting shot: “I’m a true martial artist and there’s no-one in combat sports, I don’t care what it is, that can touch me. On New Year’s Eve, I’m gonna blast my way into the UFC!”
Well he certainly was good to his word as he destroyed Ivan Buchinger in less than one round to add the lightweight belt to his featherweight crown at The Helix on December 31.
McGregor dominated the fight but it is the KO that is the most impressive. The full fight is above for your enjoyment but if you just want to see the devastating one-punch KO then skip to 6.00 in the video.
With power like that, we expect 2013 to be a massive year for McGregor.
Cheers to Cage Warriors for sending us the fight.
