While it's already being praised as one of the most impressive UFC debuts in recent memory, Conor McGregor's UFC on FUEL TV 9 win didn't just boost his notoriety in the sport: It's also going to get him off welfare.

"Just last week I was collecting the social welfare," McGregor (13-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) said at Saturday's UFC on FUEL TV 9 post-event press conference. "I was in there saying to them, 'I don't know what's going to happen. I'm signed to the UFC. I don't know. Blah, blah, blah.' Now I supposed I'm just going to have to tell them, 'F--k off!'"

He seemed like a dick at the weigh ins but explained post fight. Just a guy that isn't to this much exposure but he definitely impressed, the angles and feints he was using were beautiful. He looked like Mayweather with some of those shoulder rolls.

The fight reminded me of Anderson Silva vs Chris Leben.
I knew Connor was going to get the KO, but not so easily.

22pts!

Good call. I'd like to see that fight as well.

They will probably give McGregor a striker next though. Build him up a little bit.
