Conor McGregor KOs Eddie Alvarez To Win Lightweight Title And Make UFC History

Conor McGregor made history with victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.

He becomes the first ever UFC fighter to hold titles in two separate divisions simultaneously.

It was a fight which saw the Irishman in control throughout and never in danger. He dropped Alvarez three times in the first round. After that, it appeared to only be a matter of time before McGregor would end the American's reign.

Just over three minutes into the second round, McGregor again dropped Alvarez to the canvas before going in for the finish. Referee John McCarthy wasted no time in taking the decision to stop the fight.
