In the meantime fans are feeling cheated as after 14 months of build-up for the fight they had merely 13 seconds of fight. It was heartening to see the legendary Jose Aldo go down the canvass in less than quarter of a minute. McGregor and Aldo advanced to meet each other in the centre of the Octagon, McGregor getting there first. He threw a left, which Aldo dodged, and followed it up with a low prod of his right foot. The fighters bounced on the balls of their feet and twice pawed at each otherâ€™s lead gloves. Then Aldo lunged forward, swinging his right hand. McGregor anticipated the punch, stepped back, and cracked the advancing Aldo square on the jaw with a left hook.
This punch took Aldo with so much surprise that and was so much forceful that it crushed Aldo. He fell heavily on his left side and rolled onto his back. McGregor pounced to hammer his left fist twice into Aldoâ€™s defenceless head before the referee dived in to stop the fight.
But the referees were finding them in a piquant situation when the now ex champ got on his feet and argued with the officials. He seemed to be complaining that the fight had been stopped far too early. If he was complaining that the fight had been stopped too early, it could only have been the result of confusion brought on by the concussive blows he had taken to the head.
