The champ has spoken...

We'd imagine that Conor McGregor is in pretty good form right about now.

Still fresh from his unbelievable one-punch, 13-second demolition of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, the Dubliner has now publicly thanked his fans on Instagram and Twitter with a very special message.

Here's what The Notorious had to say...

Thank you for all the kind messages!

I am extremely grateful and proud to be in the position I am in.

To the naked eye it was 13 seconds, but to my team and my family it has been a lifetime of work to get to that 13 seconds.

Congratulations to the staff at the UFC on a historic week in the sports history and an amazing 2015 for the company.

It is an honor to be playing a part in this great companies continued growth and success and an honor to top off a phenomenal week in the sports history.

Thank you to all the fans who travelled and made this week what it was!! The traveling Irish are untouchable when it comes to creating the atmosphere needed to make a week like this what it was!! I am forever blown away by the support of my country. We have changed the game forever!!! Respect to a great champion in Jose Aldo. The true greats will always overcome adversity.
