Following his crazy 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo and even crazier UFC 194 after party in Las Vegas on Saturday night, new undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor took to social media to address the wild year he had in 2015, and to deliver a kind message for a change to the former 145-pound king of the UFC.
“The Notorious” Conor McGregor posted the following on his Instagram page.
“Thank you for all the kind messages! I am extremely grateful and proud to be in the position I am in.
To the naked eye it was 13 seconds, but to my team and my family it has been a lifetime of work to get to that 13 seconds.
