Conor McGregor is harping over the time of his knockout victory over Jose Aldo from 2015.

“The Notorious” took to Twitter recently and made the case that his knockout of “Scarface” took just 12 seconds – not the official 13 that is currently in the record books. Here’s what the recently-retired Irishman had to say on Twitter:

“It was 12! Look at this gif closely everyone and watch the clock. Referee Big John steps in at 4.48 seconds of the very first round. That’s 12 seconds! I demand it corrected before anymore talks commence. And yes that’s right, I smoked that boy in a gif. Now pass me my whiskey.”

McGregor knocked out Aldo in the main event of UFC 194 back in 2015. The victory was arguably the one that propelled him into a completely different tier of super stardom in the sporting world. “Mystic Mac” became the first man to defeat Aldo in over a decade. The win also earned McGregor the record for fastest finish in UFC title fight history.

He then went on to capture the lightweight championship, becoming the first-ever dual weight champion in promotion history. At the moment, McGregor claims he is retired from MMA after failing to come to terms on a new deal for his return to the Octagon. However, with a recent sexual assault allegation now looming, a return to the cage anytime soon seems unlikely.

Jose Aldo isn’t quite sure of his UFC 237 status at the moment.

Aldo is currently slated to face Alexander Volkanovski at the pay-per-view (PPV), which takes place from the Rio Olympic Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 11, 2019. However, Aldo was hospitalized earlier this week in Brazil due to an infection.

The bacterial infection was reportedly caused by a cut suffered during training. Aldo did not react well to the first round of antibiotic treatment, but his condition soon improved and he was later released. Speaking to MMA Fighting, Aldo offered an update on his condition.

In regards to whether or not he’ll be fighting at UFC 237, Aldo still can’t commit as to whether or not he’ll be there on fight night:

“Yeah, it crossed my mind because when I got to the hospital I was only supposed to be there for a night. And then the antibiotics they gave me didn’t work. So, they waited another two days until they switched the antibiotics, which started to work.

“Obviously I thought about not being able to fight – and I still can’t say that I’m going to fight because I need to go to the doctor and get it re-evaluated, but we’re doing everything we can and hopefully I’ll get healed up.”

Aldo is doing well inside the Octagon at the moment. He is currently on a two-fight knockout streak. “Scarface” finished Jeremy Stephens back in July, and followed it up with a second-round defeat of his fellow countryman Renato Moicano in February.

He’ll step into the cage against Volkanovski, who is one of the more promising prospects at 145 pounds at the moment.
