UFC 246 featured the much anticipated return of superstar Conor McGregor as he brutally demolished Donald Cerrone via TKO in just 40 seconds.

The former champ used unique shoulder strikes which broke Cowboy’s orbital bone. The magnitude of the shots certainly threw Cowboy off as he rammed into a McGregor head kick before getting finished via ground and pound.

Even though Cowboy is as tough as they come, one man actually thought he gave up. ESPN sports journalist who also covers some MMA and radio host Stephen A Smith accused Cowboy of quitting during the fight. Smith’s statement was criticized across the MMA community. Smith recently released a video of him doing some padwork which was heavily trolled as well. UFC commentator Joe Rogan along with former UFC lightweight Josh Thompson had some words for Smith.

“Someone needs to explain to me what’s happening here. It looks like he’s punching a baby,” Joe Rogan said to Thomson as the pair watched the footage of Smith’s pad work. “This guy should not be allowed to talk about fighting.”

Smith took to Twitter to address the issue. (via Twitter):

“Mad respect to Joe Rogan. Nothing but respect for the man and the tremendous work that he has done and will continue to do throughout the years and for years to come. But you’re wrong on this one my man.”

However weighed in on the topic was McGregor himself. A classy McGregor replied to Smith about his comments and asked him to apologize to Cowboy. (via Twitter):

“The call you discuss here is A+. I didn’t show enough. I’m not paid by the hour though. Joe’s comments however, come from you saying the opposition fighter quit. Broken nose/orbital bone say different. Fighting is vicious. Those who make the walk deserve full respect. Apologise.”
