McGregor stops Brandao in first


The main event of Saturday's UFC Fight Night 45 in Dublin, Ireland featured a featherweight class between Conor McGregor and Diego Brandao.

Conor McGregor carried the weight of the expectations of his entire country into the Octagon with him on Saturday at Dublin's O2 Arena.

But if the bombastic Irish featherweight was nervous, he never showed it. McGregor fed off one of the most raucous atmospheres in UFC history and finished former Ultimate Fighter champion Diego Brandao in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46.

"I said I was going to put him away in the first round," said McGregor (15-2). "I put him away in the first round."

The UG didn't explode because their dicks are hard as they're ever going to get for McGregor. Brandao clearly motioned no glove touch, but then Conor came out looking like he was going to touch gloves, Bradao obliged, they touched gloves, and then he threw a spinning kick. It was pretty corny.Cheating is also pretty corny. Dude prevented at least two takedowns by grabbing the fence. Hard to make a case for this guy's pure talent when he cheats multiple times per round.

lol @ you.It was on free tv in Ireland- (keep in mind Ireland has about four channels on free tv, so if you were watching tv in the country from 8-10pm you were bound to find it). Also pretty much every bar with a tv in the country was showing it. So quite a few people saw it. UFC made a couple of million casual fans last night- easy. Didn't hurt one bit that the Irish fighters won every fight they were in!

McGregor vs. Brandao: the fight that no one @ Fight Pass. Not exactly a good way to build up interest in upcoming fighters.

Diego showed a lot of class at the post fight presser.

Rewatched it several times and I can admit that I was wrong. He sustained a lot of damage leading up to that. From that spinning kick to the body shot and some others. Seems like he was just broken down.
