The featured image above was taken by me at UFC 189 as I stood in awe after Conor McGregor won the interim title dispatching Chad Mendes in the 2nd by TKO after José Aldo pulled out 1 week before fight night. While impressive, questions were left unanswered due to the late replacement and the upper hand Mendes had until he gassed. Even with the win, people still needed McGregor to pass the Aldo test, one that no one has passed, as he has been the company’s only Featherweight Champion who hasn’t lost in over 10 years.
