Conor McGregor dropped arguably his most iconic interview after becoming undisputed UFC featherweight champion, with fans missing the 2015 version of the superstar fighter.
McGregor mania peaked at UFC 194 when he fulfilled his prophecy with one destructive left-hook that ended Jose Aldo's legendary reign at 145lbs.
He was ultra-sharp inside the Octagon to secure the devastating finishing blow, and equally on-point during his post-fight press conference.
Donning an exquisite three-piece, the 'Notorious' stood at the podium like he owned the company and spoke eloquently about his 13-second demolition of Aldo.
The fresh-faced McGregor even gave credit to the Brazilian as he touched on his epic journey to UFC glory in a moment that will go down in MMA history.
Fight fans loved his performance on the microphone and reminisced about the 2015 version of McGregor.
"This guy is one of a kind. Never saw anyone in the UFC with that much confidence. Love this guy," one wrote.
A second commented; "Best McGregor interview ever! This is when he was top of the game physically, mentally & spiritually!"
A third added: "The world misses this Conor."
A fourth reflected: "Anyone else watch this and just miss this version of McGregor?"
Another admitted: "This is the McGregor I'm a fan of..."
The press conference will be remembered as one of McGregor's finest moments on the mic.
His 13-second championship win remains the fastest title fight victory in UFC history.
