rish mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor was victorious in his first UFC match in over 15 months, with a technical knockout win over American opponent Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A head-kick caught Cerrone early on on the side of the temple, and from that point on, it was over for ‘Cowboy’.

Punches in bunches followed by the Irishman, and eventually, the match referee had to step in and intervene.

McGregor has spoken about his desires to be more competitive this year than the year prior, and he’s started 2020 off in style, and will surely be eyeing up that rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov sooner rather than later.

Due to his versatility at making weights, the Irishman has plenty of options for him going forward, with some big fights being touted for this year.

The 31-year-old now has a professional record of 22-4.
