The UFC's very first event of 2020 saw McGregor's hand being raised once again. He only needed 40 seconds to take out the UFC's all-time winningest fighter in Cerrone.
For the Irishman, it was his first victory inside the Octagon since he won the UFC lightweight championship in November 2016. That fight being when he flawlessly outstruck Eddie Alvarez en route to a second-round TKO.
Since then, McGregor fought for the title again after being stripped of both the lightweight and featherweight belts. That fight come at UFC 229 in October 2018 against the new champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
In round four, the Russian would submit McGregor with a neck crank for his first successful title defense.
After the clear loss and all the bad blood that boiled over, McGregor seemed at a low as he had to serve a suspension for the pair's post-fight antics. During his time away, McGregor also dealt with a plethora of legal issues, some of which allegedly still see him under investigation for sexual assault, according to the New York Times.
