Fighting legend Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone responded with trademark class after being stopped by Conor McGregor in just 40 seconds at UFC 246.

McGregor busted Cerrone’s nost with his shoulder when the pair got in a clinch immediately, and then followed that up with a left-foot kick to his opponent’s jaw which dropped Cowboy.
