Conor McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo at UFC 194 in Las Vegas. McGregor needed just 13 seconds to take out Aldo.

It was the fastest fight in UFC title fight history, as McGregor landed a left-handed knockout. As Aldo was on the ground, the Irish man hit him with hammer-fist punches before “Big” John McCarthy called off the fight.

Aldo said he still wanted to fight in his post-fight interview with UFC announcer Joe Rogan. But as we know, it doesn’t work that way, as it is Aldo’s first loss in a decade.

The Brazilian was stunned after the loss, as it appeared that he didn’t know what happened when he was talking to the medical staff.

McGregor is the biggest superstar in the UFC right now, as he becomes the 2nd Featherweight Champion. This is Aldo’s first loss in the UFC and his first loss overall since JF5 against Luciano Azevedo on November 26th, 2005, with a rear-naked choke submission.

The losses to Acevedo and McGregor are the only two in Aldo’s career. He now drops to 25-2, while McGregor improved to 19-2. McGregor has been perfect since coming into the UFC.

This fight was originally scheduled to take place in July. However, Aldo claimed to have an injury, so UFC President Dana White elected to give Chad Mendes a two-week short-notice opportunity to face the Notorious one.

Mendes was doing good in the first round and much of the second round. However, towards the end of the second round, he ran out of gas, and that’s when McGregor caught Mendes to get the win to set up this fight.

With McGregor dominating Aldo, it wouldn’t be surprising if UFC President Dana White sets up a match-up with McGregor and Frankie Edgar for a UFC pay-per-view main event in 2016.

Edgar defeated Chad Mendes on Friday night at the UFC 22 Finale.
