The 31-year-old used his shoulders to break Cowboy’s nose before following up with a kick and then some ground and pound until the referee stepped in to call it.

That not only secured McGregor the win, it also cemented his place in the record books as the first UFC fighter to triumph via KO at featherweight, lightweight and welterweight.

And the Irishman demanded respect afterwards inside the cage as he spoke to Joe Rogan.

McGregor said: “It was a good shot. It feels very good, I made history tonight.

“I said on the record that I would be the first UFC fighter to secure knockouts in three divisions.

“I’m very, very happy and proud tonight. The work has been phenomenal, I appreciate you all.”

Jorge Masvidal, who called out McGregor pre-fight, was sat ringside to watch the action in Las Vegas.

And the former two-weight world champ had some words for the “BMF Title” holder.


McGregor added: “I’m so happy. Who’s going up and down divisions and stopping people like that?!

“The UFC can strip fighters [belts] and give other fighters make-believe belts in order to replicate my champ-champ status but they can’t give knockout victories across multiple weight divisions.

“Etch my name in history one more time. For the Irish people, for my ma back home…I love ya to bits, I’m coming home with the win!!”
