Conor McGregor is adamant that his knockout victory over Jose Aldo at UFC 194 took place in twelve seconds, not thirteen.
The former two-division UFC champion, McGregor, took to Twitter where he shared video proof of his claim, this while demanding that the promotion adjust the record books before any “talks” commence.
“It was 12! Look at this gif closely everyone and watch the clock. Referee Big John steps in at 4.48 seconds of the very first round. That’s 12 seconds! I demand it corrected before anymore talks commence. And yes that’s right, I smoked that boy in a gif. Now pass me my whiskey.” – Conor McGregor
“Mystic Mac” sent shockwaves throughout the mixed martial arts community earlier this week when he announced his retirement from the sport.
Shortly following McGregor’s retirement news, reports surfaced that the Irish star was being investigated by police after sexual assault allegations.
A spokesperson for Conor McGregor would later address the allegations, confirming that the accusations had nothing to do with his retirement from MMA.
McGregor was last seen in action at October’s UFC 229 event, where he suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in his bid to reclaim the promotions lightweight title.
The Irishman was later suspended by the NSAC for his actions in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
