GIF: Watch Conor McGregor’s controversial KO (and check out his ridiculous barnet)

'Notorious' makes it four wins on the spin as the Emerald Isle takes over Vegas

by Josh Powell | September 28, 2014

Yesterday at Croke Park 30 Irishman beat the hell out of each other, as Kilkenny pipped Tipperary to the All-Ireland Hurling Championship. A few hours later, across the pond in Las Vegas, another Irishman was dishing out an ass-whooping. But he was doing it in just his pants.

Conor McGregor made it four straight wins at UFC 178 with a first round TKO win over Dustin Poirier. The fighting Irishman has moved up the featherweight rankings and now has his eyes on a world title.

But this fight wasn’t without controversy – and we’re not talking about McGregor’s terrible ponytail thing. The Irish fighter caught Poirier with a left hook to the back of the head, sending the American to the mat and following a few more strikes, the referee stopped the fight. Was it a foul shot or was it purely accidental, as McGregor aimed and threw his punch at a legal area before Poirier ducked?

Check out the GIF and decide for yourself.


Also, Conor if you read this, we’re only joking about your haircut. It’s really cool, and you rock it. We’re even thinking about making it a compulsory look for all Blog staff. Really slick. Please don’t punch us.
