UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is known for his analysing of situations and bold predictions off the back of them, however, it seems that the 145lbs King is perhaps getting a bit too carried away.
In his latest Instagram post, McGregor has analysed the moment he became UFC Champion and more so the way that referee “Big” John McCarthy stopped the fight. McGregor claims in his post (see below) that he was in the perfect position to land “Two or three quick cracks” to McCarthy had he been an attacker.
Most will see 1 unconscious man here. I see a clean get up about to happen in a fight against multiple attackers. Hips away, strong frame with the left hand, right hand post on the mat with bottom leg free for a clean get up. If Big John was a second attacker, he is in trouble. I am a split second away from being back to my feet here. With his outstretched, forward reaching pressure, and his torso separated from his hips, Big John is ending up face down after the get up. Two or three quick cracks to his temple and I make my escape clean. Two attackers immobilized. What's up Las Vegas.
