McGregor won by knockout in the second round and became the first man in UFC history to hold championships at two weight classes. Here’s the finish:
McGregor floored Alvarez with punches three times in the first round and completely dominated the opening five minutes. The southpaw’s left hand shots were landing with laser precision and Alvarez had no answer.
The second round continued the same way, as McGregor absolutely tagged Alvarez several times, before fending off a takedown attempt. Then McGregor landed a huge left to Alvarez’s temple, which he quickly followed with a right, a left and another right and that was it. The champ was down and out.
What’s next for McGregor? Walking around with two belts on his shoulders is certainly in his plans.
