• McGregor wins interim featherweight UFC title


    LAS VEGAS: Conor McGregor lived up to the expectations as the Irish fighter recovered from a serious beating to hand a Technical Knockout to America’s Chad Mendes in a classic Mixed Martial Art UFC 189 interim featherweight title fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena here. With the likes of former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and Hollywood Star and ex-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in attendance, McGregor fought bravely to stun a tough-looking Mendes in the second of the five-round final of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. McGregor, 26, nicknamed ‘The Notorious’, had the backing of a majority Irish crowd at the packed MGM Arena as Mendes faced a hostile scenario on home turf.
