McGregor stood in the middle of the Madison Square Garden ring, at the end of the first UFC event ever in New York City on Saturday night, as the first man ever to hold two weight-class titles at the same time in the UFC, love or hate him, you gotta hand it to him!
McGregor defeated the former champion Alvarez is a very comfortable and convincing way. his powerful left was far more than Alvarez could deal with, sending the former champion to the ground several times. As always McGregor was humble following his historic victory, “My dream has become a reality,” McGregor said after receiving both title belts. “God bless. I spend a lot of time slinging everyone in the company, I’ve ridiculed everyone on the roster, I’d like to take time to apologize to absolutely nobody,” McGregor said. “A double champ does whatever the f*ck he wants.” I guess to the avid MMA followers his outburst was no surprise really and if anything, completely expected.

So what’s next for the McGregor show train, will he face a third fight with Nate Diaz, a fighter who tore McGregor apart in their first fight and to many fight fans did enough to win their rematch. However, if a decision was ever coming it had to go McGregor’s way so they could stage a third money spinning rematch. There is talk of McGregor facing Nurmagomdov next, but his thoughts on that opponent are quite clear. “He’s fought once in eight years. He ain’t fight too frequent for my liking. For me to commit to something like that, I need to see solid proof that people are gonna show up and he’s a consistent pull-out merchant. He had a good performance tonight. Fair play to him.”
Well it’s all out there now, love or hate the Irishman, the fact still remains he delivers on the night and has proved to be a more than dominant force in the fight game.
