Athletes and celebrities congratulate Conor McGregor on stunning victory
A host of famous names, from Shaquille O'Neal to Daniel Sturridge, Jimmy Kimmel to Arnold Schwarzenegger, congratulated Conor McGregor on his impressive victory at UFC 194.
The Dubliner stopped Jose Aldo after just 13 seconds of their long-awaited UFC Feather Championship bout in Las Vegas, and it's fair to say a whole host of athletes and celebrities were impressed.
American presidential candidate Donald Trump also congratulated Dana White on the event, possibly the only time he's ever approved of two economic migrants entering the USA.
The McGregornator strikes again! Congratulations my friend, @TheNotoriousMMA.
