Conor McGregor Sets Sight On Breaking UFC Record Again

 Conor McGregor, the popular UFC fighter, has expressed his desire to surpass Matt Brown's record of thirteen knockouts in the UFC. McGregor plans to achieve this feat in his upcoming fight against Michael Chandler later this year.

Matt Brown recently tied the record by securing his thirteenth knockout victory against Court McGee at UFC Fight Night. McGregor took to Twitter to announce his intention of breaking the record, highlighting that he currently has eight knockouts at the age of 34.

In response, Brown stated that he is willing to fight McGregor to defend his record.

McGregor: “Matt Brown, at 42 years of age, now holds the joint highest KO’s inside the UFC with 13 KO’s. Him and “The Beast” Lewis are tied. I hold 8 KO’s inside the UFC currently, at 34 years of age. I’m getting this record.”

Brown: “I’ll fight you for it”

Following his fight against Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor faced a lengthy hiatus from the octagon after suffering a severe leg injury at UFC 264 in July 2021.

This injury kept him out of action for nearly two years. In recent times, the renowned Irish fighter has experienced a decline in his performance, losing three out of his last four fights.

Notably, he suffered consecutive defeats to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 and 264, as well as a notable submission loss to the undefeated UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 on October 7, 2018.

During his prime, Conor McGregor achieved remarkable success in the UFC, securing two championship titles and delivering eight impressive knockouts. His most notable quick knockout occurred in December 2015 when he defeated Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds.

In the early stages of his UFC career from 2013 to 2015, McGregor maintained an undefeated record, winning all seven of his fights. However, his first loss came against Nate Diaz at UFC 196 in March 2016.

McGregor's upcoming bout against Michael Chandler later this year will mark his return to the octagon after his last fight in 2021.
