UFC superstars Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal scored two of the fastest and most iconic knockouts in MMA history. McGregor needed only 13 seconds to stop Jose Aldo with one big punch back in 2015 in the main event of UFC 194. Masvidal’s knockout was even faster when he toppled Ben Askren at UFC 239 in 2019 in just five seconds.
But neither McGregor nor Masvidal relied on luck to score those amazing knockouts. And it didn’t happen by accident either.
The footage below shows both McGregor and Masvidal in their dressing rooms just a few hours before those fights practicing the exact moves they’d use later that night inside the UFC’s Octagon to score their devastating victories.
You can watch the amazing footage of the fighters practicing and delivering two of the most iconic knockouts in MMA history below.
