In just his second appearance since 2016, former two-division champion Conor McGregor needed a mere 40 seconds to bust the nose of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and finish him via first-round TKO in their welterweight main event at UFC 246.

Draped in the flag of his native Ireland, McGregor (22-4) sat on top of the cage wall and celebrated in front of an adoring crowd at T-Mobile Arena as "The Notorious" won for the first time since taking the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.

 "I made history here tonight. I set another record. I'm the first fighter in UFC history to get knockout victories at featherweight, at lightweight and now welterweight," McGregor said. "Donald holds the record for the most head kick knockouts so I was very very happy to get one myself. Thank you all for the support!"

 "He wasn't expecting that," McGregor said of the head kick. "I'm so happy. I'm very proud of that accomplishment. UFC can strip fighters and give other fighters make-believes belts but they can't give out knockout victories across multiple weight divisions. Etch my name in history one more time."
