Conor McGregor Mocks Jose Also Over '12' Second Loss
Possibly Conor McGregor's most famous victory was his 13 second title win over Jose Aldo but now the Irishman wants UFC to take a second off his record, all in the name of his whiskey.
What do sportsmen do once they're retired? For some there's no need to do anything, others try coaching and some go and sit in a studio to become pundits but Conor McGregor has chosen to become the world's foremost whiskey salesman.
The Irishman revealed that he was walking away from the octagon earlier this week via Twitter, although it's not the first time he's done that.
The Notorious used his last fight in UFC to promote his new business venture Perfect Twelve Whiskey by sponsoring his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
And the number 12 was on his mind when he took to Twitter to once again make fun of Jose Aldo over his very quick win against the Brazilian in 2015 but he wants the record books to show that he won in 12 seconds rather than 12, excellent marketing.
I sparked Jose in 12 seconds I demand a recount.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 29, 2019
It was 12!- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 30, 2019
Look at this gif closely everyone and watch the clock.
Referee Big John steps in at 4.48 seconds of the very first round.
That's 12 seconds!
I demand it corrected before anymore talks commence.
And yes that's right,
I smoked that boy in a gif.
Now pass me my whiskey. https://t.co/AlK5t91gJJ
A Proper Twelve second demolition job.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 30, 2019
The numbers don't lie.
Have that changed, I be back in a giffy.

He's actually out at 10 seconds. John's made a clear decision at 11 seconds. Fight is stopped by 12.
It's 10, 11 or 12 depending on what we're talking about but it's absolutely not 13. pic.twitter.com/GjGR4ANyWa
The bout itself took place on the 12th day of December.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 30, 2019
The 12th of the 12th with a 12 second K.O.
I also called the exact shot.
Now who's up for a round of shots,
But I'm not buying walhbergs shares.
Propaaa Twelve Irish Whiskey
As far as adverts go it's probably the best one for whiskey we've seen in a while.
The fight with Aldo at UFC 194 gave McGregor his first full title belt in the promotion when he unified his interim belt with the featherweight title.
Their rivalry was the fiercest for the Irishman until his recent one with Nurmagomedov and the win early in the first round rocketed him into superstardom.
Will we see McGregor back in UFC anytime or will his retirement stick this time?
