Conor McGregor’s Message To Dillashaw & Cejudo After UFC Brooklyn

Conor McGregor kept an eye on UFC’s Saturday affair in Brooklyn, New York. 

The Irish star has accepted Donald Cerrone’s callout following “Cowboy’s” impressive win over Alexander Hernandez. And shortly after Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw tussled in the main event, McGregor took to social media to give his two cents about the fight.

History Was Made

Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw headlined the UFC on ESPN+1 on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Both fighters are coming off big wins as the former upset Demetrious Johnson while the latter blew out Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227 last year.

The champ vs champ clash did not end up as expected as the reigning champion, Cejudo, made quick work of his challenger. In just 32 seconds to the opening round, he punched his way to a stoppage victory to retain his flyweight belt.

It was one of the biggest highlights of UFC’s first offering on ESPN. Cejudo plotted a rare milestone as his stoppage win became the fastest in the flyweight division and the fifth fastest in UFC history. He also dealt Dillashaw’s first knockout loss since 2011.

Unlucky

“The Viper” wasn’t happy on how the fight was officiated but Cejudo stressed that it was just a right call. While many fans are debating on social media whether the stoppage was called early or not, Conor McGregor reminded everyone that he has done what Dillashaw and Cejudo both failed to achieve tonight.

“The Notorious” took to Twitter and called both fighters “unlucky” after their main event clash in Brooklyn.

“Unlucky T.J on your attempt at Champ Champ status.
Respect for your weight cut. I have been there and it is not easy.
Unlucky Henry on your attempt at fastest K.O in a UFC title fight.
I have been there, and I still am.
Congrats on the win.
Yours truly,
The O.G Champ Champ.”

McGregor was one of the three UFC fighters to hold two-belts simultaneously, alongside Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes. He won the featherweight belt in 2015 before capturing the lightweight title in the following year.

He was then stripped of both titles due to inactivity. But even after losing these belts, he continues to refer to himself as the “champ-champ.” As for the fastest knockout in UFC, he really holds this distinction after finishing Jose Aldo in their title fight in 2015 in just 13 seconds.

“The Notorious” returned to Octagon in October only to be submitted by lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229.

The UFC has yet to book McGregor for his next fight as the former two-division champion is currently serving an indefinite suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his involvement in the ugly-post fight brawl that broke out at UFC 229.
