Whether you want it to or not, the Conor McGregor hype train rolls on, as he wins with a first round TKO over Diego Brandao. Brandao’s guard opened, which allowed McGregor to slice a long left through the opening that met Brandao’s jaw. Brandao, then, wilted to the canvas in slow motion, where McGregor unloaded a bevy of left hands until the ref pulled him off.
Time to give McGregor a formidable opponent, as in one in Dustin Poirier. That’s one dude who will fight anyone at any time. If McGregor successfully gets past Poirier, give him Ricardo Lamas. He’ll be busy for a while.
