CONOR McGregor backed up every single word.
The Irish mixed martial arts sensation won the UFC interim featherweight title at UFC 189 yesterday, stopping Chad Mendes with three seconds left in the second round with a vicious series of strikes.
McGregor spent much of the first two rounds on his back, but he finished the fight with a lightningquick combination soon after he reached his feet. After a big left hand put Mendes down, McGregor pounded away for the stoppage.
He sunk to his knees in tears while thousands of Irish fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena roared in adoration.
