  • UFC’s best not burdened by holidays

    By Andy Samuelson · Dec. 17, 2008 · 2:00 a.m.

    ‘Tis the season … unless you’re a mixed martial artist who's been cooped up in the gym training for the last two months. “I never really liked the holidays anyway,” said a monotone-sounding Forrest Griffin, during a teleconference Tuesday when he was asked if it’s difficult to train during the holiday season.

UFC 194
Conor McGregor stops Jose Aldo for fastest finish in title fight history

UFC 194 Conor McGregor became more than UFC featherweight champion with his 13-second knockout victory over Jose Aldo. He became the UFC. McGregor transcended into a level above any other fighter by living up to every promise about what he’d do to the only previous 145-pound champion in UFC history. And he set a slew of records doing it, including creating a live gate of $10.1 million at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta later said McGregor would become the first man to make more than $100 million in the octagon. The new era didn’t stop with McGregor. Luke Rockhold unseated previously undefeated Chris Weidman in the main event to become the seventh middleweight champion in UFC history.
