After losing the first round to Mendes who scored on three takedowns and was using elbows and sharp punches that ultimately cut McGregor’s eye, the ultra popular Irishman silenced the critics and sent it in true form with a flurry of punches after being pinned on his back finishing Mendes at the 4 minute 57 second mark of the second round.
