While history may remember Conor McGregor’s trip to Welterweight as a misadventure it does nothing to diminish his incredible achievements in the UFC so far. Arriving from Cage Warriors as a two-weight champ, McGregor made the step up in competition with ease. Not just stealing the show in the Octagon, but establishing himself as a true star outside of it, making millions of dollars in the process. Such stardom isn’t easily created or extinguished.
There will have been plenty of people jumping out of their seats cheering when Nate Diaz forced Conor McGregor to submit in the main event at UFC 196 – and they had a good reason to.
Who knew there was a title fight this weekend? We did, because we know everything. Including the future. #TeamKnee telling it like it is, yet again.
