The Notorious Conor McGregor waltzed into the octagon and made light work of veteran Dennis Siver last night.
The Irishman vowed to end it early but the German managed to hang on until round two.

After referee Herb Dean stepped in and stopped the fight, the cocky featherweight vaulted the octagon straight for Jose Aldo.
And after getting in the face of the Brazilian, the Dubliner had a few choice words for the champ.
I said two minutes, I meant two rounds. I felt comfortable throughout.
I don’t think any of these (guys) pose a threat. Every single one of them keep talking about the talk. They keep saying this guy’s all talk. But never once in your life would you hear them talk about the skill or the technique because they know I own that.
I don’t even know, fuck him (Jose Also) anyway. he’s one of them that keeps saying all talk.
It’s not all talk here, I’m gonna wipe out everyone in this division, I said that and I will do it.
Hold on until I get my spit bucket, I’m going to hand him my spit bucket. so he can shine that belt and bring it back here, ready for me to take it.
After Aldo declined to come in the octagon and speak to McGregor face to face, the former Cage Warriors champ said:
He’s gone! He’s gone back to Brazil with that spit bucket!
UFC colour commentator Joe Rogan met Aldo outside the cage to get his thoughts on the confrontation.
It’s normal to me. He’s just a joke and a court jester to me.
After the fight it was announced McGregor would be next to meet Aldo and the former soccer player can’t wait.
I think it’s great, I think it’s great for the ufc and the fans. I definitely think it’s the biggest fight the weight class will see.
No I’m not impressed (by McGregor). He said it’d take two minutes and it took over a round. Dennis siver is a good fighter but not the calibre I’ve fought before.
Yeah it’s great all this hype. I’m the champ and I’m only 28 years old and have a lot of years ahead of me.
One thing is for sure, we can’t wait for this title fight.
