Conor McGregor celebrates ten-year UFC anniversary by looking back at 67-second knockout win over Marcus Brimage


Conor McGregor couldn’t resist getting involved as MMA fans across the world celebrated his ten-year UFC anniversary.

‘Notorious’ joined MMA’s premier promotion in 2013 and made his debut on April 6 against Marcus Brimage, who he impressively knocked out in just 67 seconds at UFC Stockholm.

Exactly a decade later, McGregor shared footage from the fight that was originally uploaded by one of his fan pages, alongside the caption: “10 Years Ago on this Day! Conor McGregor came & changed the whole Fight Game.”

The former dual-weight UFC champion later shared a commemorative picture with his 46.1 million Instagram followers to mark the significant career milestone.

McGregor captioned the post: “Ten years in the UFC!” 

The 34-year-old hasn’t fought in almost two years and has only won one fight since 2016, but insists his combat sports career is far from over.

McGregor has recently been filming The Ultimate Fighter with Michael Chandler ahead of their fight which is expected to take place at some point this year.

During his lengthy injury layoff, ‘Mystic Mac’ has repeatably suggested he will target the UFC welterweight title currently in the possession of Leon Edwards when he returns to fighting.

A win over Chandler may be enough to earn him a title shot after ‘Rocky’ has defended his belt against long-time contender Colby Covington this summer.

However, McGregor’s comeback is yet to be assigned a date, official weight, or venue and his ongoing dispute with the United States Anti-Doping Agency [USADA] could be the reason why.

USADA wants the UFC’s biggest-ever star to undergo six months of random drug tests before competing again.

But the Dublin native believes only two are required ahead of his fight with Chandler.

UFC president Dana White is refusing to intervene and the issue between McGregor and USADA is showing no signs of being resolved anytime soon.

Fans remain hopeful that McGregor’s return to action will come soon after his ten-year UFC anniversary, but with each passing day that becomes increasingly unlikely.
