The 24-year-old Irishman (12-2) became the first fighter to simultaneously hold CWFC titles in two unified weight classes after securing a stunning first-round KO victory over Slovakian star Ivan Buchinger.
The bout was for the vacant CWFC lightweight title and subsequently gave McGregor a second Cage Warriors belt. Back in June he captured the vacant featherweight strap after submitting Dave Hill with a second-round rear-naked choke.
It seems to be only a matter of time before McGregor makes the ascent to the UFC, with Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan tweeting after the event: “…should be in the @UFC ….. SIGN HIM he’s proved himself. #cwfc51 IRISH MMA HISTORY right here.”
McGregor also received a strong endorsement from UFC commentator Joe Rogan on Twitter: “I just caught your fight, Conor. Congratulations, you looked sensational. Hope to see you in the UFC some day. Best of luck.”
Cage Warriors have released the full-fight video, which has since gone viral. View it below:
