On Saturday night, Conor McGregor ended a nearly two-year hiatus with a knock-out against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone a new report from the New York Post revealed.
Conor McGregor had previously lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October of 2018, in what became a very controversial fight, especially the lead-up, but certainly the aftermath as well.
However, on Saturday night, Conor, who is known for his larger than life personality, won his first fight in approximately two years and surely made everyone in his native Ireland proud. After the fight was over, Conor kissed his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, who is the mother of their two children together.
As it was previously reported, the MMA fighter KO’d Cerrone in just forty seconds into the fight, and then embraced Devlin while celebrating his victory. Conor stated that he “made history” last night, becoming the first fighter to win in three different weight classes.
Conor stated that Donald was also the record-holder for most fights won with a head kick, which ironically is the way the fight ended with Cerrone. Before Conor’s win, Devlin, who has been dating Conor since 2008, posted several pictures of each other as they celebrated the new year.
On the 31st of December, Devlin posted pictures celebrating the end of the decade together. As it was noted above, McGregor and Devlin have two children together, Conor Junior and Croia. Devlin is 32-years-old and Conor is 31-years-old.
Fans of the MMA fighter have been torn on their support of him in the last two years, especially after his arrest outside of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. McGregor reportedly grabbed a man’s phone and smashed it on the ground.
He was charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief. Later, charges were dropped against him due to inconsistencies in the victim’s testimony, and a civil suit against the martial artist was also dropped.
Conor got in trouble with the law once again on the 15th of August, 2019, when TMZ published a video of the fighter punching a man at The Marble Arch Pub. It reportedly occurred on the 6th of April and was published in the Irish media. He later pled guilty to assault.
