With less than three weeks to go to Conor McGregor’s showdown with Rafael Dos Anjos, UFC have posted the historic fight between the Dubliner and Jose Aldo on their Youtube channel, free for all to watch.
When Conor McGregor’s protruding left-hand broke the guard of Chad Mendes at UFC 189, the Irishman realised the dream of a lifetime by becoming a world champion.
Although it was as interim champion, it would still afford him the opportunity to finally get his hands on Jose Aldo, in what was one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history. And we all now know what happened there.
With Aldo pulling out of the original fight, McGregor was thrown in with the most dangerous wrestler in the division on two weeks notice.
Mendes had success early on, exploiting McGregor’s takedown defence, but it was the straight left that so far nobody has had an answer for that founds its target, knocking the American out.
For anyone who didn’t see McGregor down Mendes, or for fight fans who simply want to relive the moment one more time, thanks to UFC, we now can on Youtube.
It doesn’t just end there – fans can also witness Rafael Dos Anjos’ stunning dominant victory over former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.
Dos Anjos, a heavy underdog going into the fight, found the recipe to deal with Pettis’ unorthodox style.
It’s hard to not get excited just thinking about what will happen when these two monsters finally come face-to-face, and it’s even harder to predict how the fight will play out.
