UFC fighter Conor McGregor made UFC history becoming the first fighter in the history of the promotion to hold two UFC belts.
The reigning featherweight champion capped the UFC’s triumphant return by knocking out Eddie Alvarez to claim the lightweight crown.
McGregor downed Alvarez three times in the opening round leaving the champion stunned and on the back foot for the entire five minutes and it didn’t get any better for the Philadelphia native.
Midway through the second round McGregor unleashed another combination and this time there was no way back for Alvarez as McGregor pounced to finish the fight.
McGregor now holds victories in three different UFC Weightclasses. With the ban on mixed martial arts the UFC returned to New York after an absence of over two decades.
