UFC 194: Conor McGregor Takes Out Jose Aldo Moments Into Long Awaited Fight
By FCF Staff
Fans have been waiting for months and months to see Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor throw down, but their highly anticipated bout lasted only seconds at UFC 194.
McGregor and Aldo exchanged left hooks moments into the bout, but the punch of “Notorious” landed straight on the jaw of the featherweight champ and sent him crashing to the mat. McGregor put Aldo away with a follow up hammer fist, and secured the 145 title in just 13 seconds.
In the co-headliner, Luke Rockhold ended the reign of Chris Weidman, by putting the middleweight away with punches in round four. Weidman kept Rockhold at bay early on with kicks and forward movement. But in round three, the challenger took him to the ground and battered the champ with elbows and punches.
A bloodied and bruised Weidman survived the round, but in round four, Rockhold took him down again and finished the bout with punches from above.
