December 14, 2015 9:09 am by Russell Ess

Jose Aldo was ranked at the top of the UFC’s pound-for-pound list, and Conor McGregor took just 13 seconds to knock Aldo out cold on Saturday night with the fastest finish in the UFC’s championship bout history.

Has Conor McGregor emerged to take the number one spot from Aldo as the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world? When asked if he feels he is the pound-for-pound best, the “Notorious” feels that no other fighter can do it like he can.

“I believe so,” McGregor said. “I believe there are many great fighters. There are many people who do great things. But, when you combine it all together, when you combine the whole package, the whole animal that is the fight game, I don’t think there’s nobody that does it better than me. I think I am the pound-for-pound Number 1.”

What do you say fight fans? Did Conor McGregor take the spot for number 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world? Let’s take this one to the comments!
