Call that a punch? THIS is a punch…
Currently enjoying some time away, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor still makes headlines daily. Since defeating Eddie Alvarez to become two-weight world champion at UFC 205, the frenzy has only gotten bigger.
Obviously, McGregor’s fame is unparalleled in the sport. Perhaps only matched in the past by Ronda Rousey, but many believe ‘The Notorious’ has now passed that milestone. Following just three years in the UFC, the Irishman’s achievements are truly great.
Very few fighters from mixed martial arts go mainstream, let alone become superstars. There’s no denying that Conor McGregor is huge right now, and has been for a while. It seems everything he says is newsworthy at the moment.
It hasn’t always been this good for McGregor, which is part of what makes his story so user-friendly. Back in the day, McGregor was poor and living off benefits in Ireland. Now he makes more money in one night than most people in a lifetime.

Recently we saw a viral video from the Australian outback that proved to be wildly popular. The clip,k which showed a man punching a kangaroo that was attacking his dog, went viral on various social media outlets.
Apparently not satisfied with the already massively viewed video, someone decided to add Conor McGregor into the mix. Using his fight-winning combo against Eddie Alvarez, some cyber dork has made the video even funnier.

And The Winner By KNOCKOUT….
Always entertaining when he’s on-screen, Conor McGregor is rapidly becoming an icon in all departments. He’ll be inactive for at least another eight months or so, meaning the only punches we’ll get to see him throw are in replays or edited videos like the one above.
