UFC 246 is finally in the books now and it is certainly safe to say that it was indeed a great event. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion just made his comeback today against Donald Cowboy Cerrone. And oh what a come back it turned out to be. McGregor turned back the clock and looked hungry, passionate and extremely dangerous kind of like the McGregor of old, back when in he was still chasing the featherweight and lightweight titles in 2014, 2015, 2016 and before that. He absolutely smashed Cerrone in just 40 seconds of the very first round.
McGregor started the fight fast putting instant pressure on Cerrone as he quickly closed in the distance as soon as the bell rang. He went to throw a strike which Cowboy dodged and level changed to go for a takedown, McGregor on the contrary jumped and partially hit Cerrone with a knee, and the two engaged in a clinch. McGregor then absolutely stunned Cerrone and hit him with three freak powerful shoulder strikes.
The two then disengaged from the clinch and got into kickboxing range. McGregor did a few feints as Cowboy hit a high head kick, which was blocked and instantly countered by Mystic Mac via head kick of his own which again rocked McGregor and dropped him to the canvas. The Irishman then proceeded to ground and pound his way to victory.
