Watch the fall out from McGregor’s quick and devastating win
Although McGregor was a strong favorite heading into UFC 246, it was a massive bout for the former champ and controversial fighter. If McGregor had lost to Cerone, then it would have been two straight defeats and his drawing power would have taken a serious hit. Further, his quest for a rematch with lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov would have been dramatically hindered.
Transversely, for Cerrone, the bout offered “Cowboy” an opportunity to get back into the title shot mix and to advance to even bigger fights.
Well, as you likely know, McGregor quickly took out Cerrone in the card’s headliner. You can watch the fighters, their teams and others react to the jaw-dropping win below.
