When Conor McGregor Tapped Out In Just 38 Seconds To Joseph Duffy

When Conor McGregor Tapped Out In Just 38 Seconds To Joseph Duffy

Conor McGregor's last defeat before signing for the UFC was a devastating 38 second submission loss to fellow countryman Joseph Duffy.

McGregor was a 4-1 novice fighting in Cage Warriors FC in 2010. He was extremely confident and self-assured, but he was in the early stages of developing his brash character that has made him one of the biggest stars in MMA.

He was matched with Duffy in a lightweight contest by CWFC, and he succumbed to his opponent's superior grappling skill set as he tapped out in just 38 seconds.

McGregor began the fight in confident manner, throwing punches until Duffy shot for a takedown. He secured a single-leg takedown before transitioning to full mount where he sunk in an arm-triangle choke, forcing McGregor to tap.

'The Notorious' bounced back from his second professional defeat in superb style as he reeled off 15 consecutive victories, including seven UFC wins against Dustin Poirier, Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo, among others.

He has since suffered two submission defeats to Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov, who beat him in his last Octagon outing.

McGregor hasn't fought since his defeat to Nurmagomedov, but he'll make his eagerly-awaited UFC return on Saturday when he faces Donald Cerrone.

He's declared his UFC 246 return fight as the start of his "2020 season" with the 31-year-old eyeing two more fights this year.

McGregor has set his sights on the likes of Nurmagomedov, Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman to name but a few as he makes his anticipated return to the sport.
