VIDEO: Irish fan recounts how Conor McGregor almost brought him out of his wheelchair

A Conor McGregor knockout can do extraordinary things.

When the Notorious took just 13 seconds to render Jose Aldo unconscious, the general reaction was one of utter shock.

Graham Merrigan, an MMA fan from Dublin, was just as shocked as everyone else. He explained to Sports Illustrated that he was so caught up in the moment after UFC 194's main event that he attempted to stand out of his wheelchair to celebrate, something he has never done before.

Check out Graham recounting the experience in the video embedded below.
