Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor victory after 40 seconds:

Mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor had not fought for more than a year. With a quick knockout win over Donald Cerrone, he now returned to the ring.

In his first fight since October 2018, mixed martial arts superstar Conor McGregor achieved a clear victory.

After only 40 seconds, the 31-year-old Irishman triumphed against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in Las Vegas through technical knockout.

After just a few seconds, Conor McGregor had hit his opponent several times hard, after a kick in the head, Cerrone wavered.

The latter tried to protect himself against the blows of his opponent for a while, then referee Herb Dean broke off the fight.

"I feel very good, I got out of there unscathed," said Conor McGregor after beating Cerrone. "I'm in shape. But we still have a lot of work to do to get myself back to where I used to be."

McGregor's lightweight title from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was revoked in April 2018 due to inactivity.

When he tried to regain him against the new champion Khabib Nurmagomedow from Russia, he failed in October of the same year.

McGregor had been suspended for six months because of violent clashes after the fight.

After an incident at a press appointment, Conor McGregor was charged with assault in April 2018, and was arrested a year later for destroying a fan's cell phone.

Shortly thereafter, he announced his retirement as an athlete. In November 2019, he pleaded guilty to slapping a man in the face in a pub in Dublin.

McGregor celebrated his last victory until then in November 2016. At Madison Square Garden in New York, he defeated Eddie Alvarez, making him the first UFC champion in two weight classes.

McGregor had announced three fights this year. He also promised a fight against boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.

It would be his second public outing into boxing after the 2017 fight against Floyd Mayweather.
