It only took 40 seconds of the first round for Conor McGregor to dispatch Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone with a rocket kick to the head and a flurry of punches. McGregor was last seen in the octagon 15 months prior when he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and many questioned if “the Notorious” was ever going to get back to his “old days.” After this fight with Cerrone, McGregor has without a doubt solidified his place in fighting with a list of future possible fights: UFC president Dana White teased reporters about a Nurmagomedov rematch, a possible Mayweather rematch, and McGregor himself has spoken about fighting Manny Pacquaio. SI’s Rohan Nadkarni breaks down the fight, and what the future may hold for the former lightweight and featherweight champion.
