Conor McGregor continues to do the impossible.
This past weekend on a historic night in Madison Square Garden, “The Notorious” Conor McGregor would close the show in impressive fashion. In his entrance he was able to capture the attention of everyone with his walk out song “I get money” by 50 Cent. As lyrics in the song would say “I run New York” as he would walk to the Octagon, it spoke to the confidence and courage of McGregor. When Eddie Alvarez came to the Octagon, it was interesting to see that McGregor looked bigger then Alvarez.
As soon as the fight had started, it was just pure domination on the part of McGregor. His accuracy, power and speed was just to much for Alvarez. Alvarez looked stunned by the power of McGregor after the first knockdown. He would knock him down three times in the very first round, with his powerful left hand. Alvarez would try to get a leg lock off his back, but McGregor showed excellent defense.
By the second round, McGregor would finish Alvarez. At one point he would put his hands behind his back, taunting Alvarez. Alvarez would try to comeback and would land some powerful shots on McGregor, but McGregor wasn’t fazed. He would get Alvarez near the center of the Octagon and land a four punch left-right combination to knockout Alvarez. The last two punches, McGregor would catch Alvarez on his way down.
McGregor would cement his legacy as one of the best of all time. At twenty eight years old, he has become the first person to win two UFC belts simultaneously. He also would help set a new attendance gate with over 17 million dollars. After a impressive performance, the world wants to know what will he do next?
