Conor McGregor never showed as much emotion in the octagon as he did after his second round finish of Chad Mendes at UFC 189.
More than likely behind on the judges scorecards in the dying moments of the second round, Conor McGregor managed to send his American opponent to the canvas with an explosive left hand.
However, prior to the flurry that ended the fight, McGregor had been dominated by Mendes with the wrestler repeatedly taking the ‘Notorious’ Irishman down with relative ease.
On the canvas, Mendes dominated the SBG man, pinning him on his back and repeatedly slamming down with vicious elbows – one of which left a gruesome cut over McGregor’s eye.
However, despite looking as if he was in serious trouble, every time the Irishman got to his feet, he laughed at his opponent and was repeatedly seen talking to the American.
Speaking about the bout a few weeks after it took place, McGregor hilariously revealed what he had been saying, stating that he told the self-proclaimed Mike Tyson of the division that he ‘hit like a b*tch’.
