Conor McGregor was reacting to UFC 278 along with us

Here’s a round-up of everything “The Notorious” Conor McGregor thought of UFC 278, including the incredible upset by Leon Edwards

While former UFC champion Conor McGregor was off doing whatever it is Conor McGregor is up to these days (and these days it’s starring in a Road House remake and “retiring” again), he decided to take in UFC 278 like the rest of us.

And McGregor being McGregor, he decided to let his thoughts be known with a running commentary on the card and its fighters via social media.

This included his own reaction to Leon Edwards pulling off his unbelievable finish of Kamaru Usman with 57 seconds left in the fight to become the first Jamaican-born UFC champion. It also features tweets from old foe Jose Aldo’s fight with Merab Dvalishvili and Paulo Costa and Luke Rockhold’s crazy war.
