Conor McGregor Reflects on UFC 246 Knockout Victory

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 13, 2020


With no fights on the horizon, Conor McGregor recently took a moment to reflect on his triumphant return to the Octagon this past January.

McGregor made short work of Donald Cerrone in the UFC 246 headliner on Jan. 18, ending the contest just 40 seconds after it began. The Irish superstar initially stunned his opponent with a series of shoulder strikes from the clinch before clipping Cerrone with a head kick. From there, McGregor overwhelmed “Cowboy” with punches near the fence for his first UFC triumph since November 2016.

“Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they believe they can’t be struck also. And with shots they don’t understand to be shots,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. Look at the range of limbs and bone joints I strike with here alone. The hip. The bone of the clavicle, the infamous collar bone! The knee. The foot. The fist (both). A lovely array.

“That will be all kids now take down your notes and your homework tonight is... enter a cold bath. As cold as it possibly is, you do not need ice,” he continued. “Get in the water and then dip your head under fully and until you need to come up for air. Repeat this over and over until you can stay under for 2 minutes fully. Then get out. Look at yourself in the mirror, and give yourself two full clatters into the teeth. You silly novices, back to bed.

“Just kidding. Respect to all the students of the game. Always remember that if it moves, you are focused on the wrong thing. Stay ready, and most importantly, stay in school.”

McGregor has been linked to a potential matchup with former World Series of Fighting champion Justin Gaethje during International Fighting Week in July, but with the UFC postponing all events indefinitely, the upcoming schedule is uncertain. UFC president Dana White has also made it clear that he believes a McGregor rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov is the fight to make, as the initial meeting reportedly set a UFC record for pay-per-view buys.
