Conor McGregor’s 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo to unify the UFC’s Featherweight Championship was one of the greatest moments in Irish sport this year, and as we’ve seen in previous fights, McGregor’s predictions came to fruition inside the Octagon.
McGregor had said in the build-up to Saturday’s fight that he could see Aldo’s right hand twitching at the weigh-in, and knew that he would lean on his right hand during the fight.
Video footage emerged after the fight of McGregor practicing the left hook that ended Aldo’s night before the fight and sure enough it’s exactly what happened when the two met inside the octagon.
McGregor’s knack for fulfilling predictions has led to his self-proclaimed moniker of “Mystic Mac” and as you’ll see in the video below, it’s a warranted title at this stage as most of McGregor’s prophecies have come true.
