In an absolutely insane ending to a crazy week from the UFC, Conor McGregor knocked Jose Aldo out in 13 seconds to capture the UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 194 on Saturday night.
The end came on the very first exchange, as Aldo lunged in with a left hand, McGregor countered with a perfect left hand to the jaw, and Aldo dropped to the ground. Aldo actually landed his strike after going unconscious, and McGregor finished it with two hammerfists on the ground.
“Precision beats power, and timing beats speed, and that’s what you saw there,” McGregor said after the bout.
It was an absolutely insane finish to the fight, ending before it ever really began, and McGregor now officially sits atop the featherweight division.
