Rory McIlroy sums up thoughts of a nation after Conor McGregor's decimation of Jose Aldo
Many believed but many more were still on the fence... until last night.
If anyone still doubts Conor McGregor after last night's swift defeat of Jose Aldo, they can huddle together to keep warm.
The Notorious answered every single doubter with a left-hand cross that saw the former featherweight champion crumple.
One of the tens of thousands of Irish fight fans watching McGregor claim his rightful place at the top of the fight game.
He turned a skeptic into a believer last night... @TheNotoriousMMA is the real deal. Talk is cheap but that left hand will make him 💵💵💰💰👊👊

There is something about Rory McIlroy tweets after major sporting achievements that make us all feel better.

The golfer put the troll in his place.
Why can't I like football and rugby? 😉🔔🔚 https://t.co/cG7E0JvSta
