 UFC 189 may go down as the greatest ever.

A possible knockout of the year, one of the best fights you’ll ever see in the octagon and a rising Irish superstar proving his doubters wrong — UFC 189 will be remembered as an epic.

Matt Brown finished of the prelim card with a gutsy submission over Tim Means and things only got better from there.

Thomas Almeida and Brad Pickett started the main card swinging before Almeida put fourth his candidate for knockout of the year with a beautiful flying knee that knockout Pickett out cold.

Icelandic submission machine Gunnar Nelson almost knocked Brandon Thatch out on his feet, before working hard to get a great rear-naked choke in the first round.

On any other night Jeremy Stephens and Dennis Bermudez would be walking away with a fight of the night bonus. The pair put on an amazing fight before Stephens pulled off the second perfect flying knee of the night before finishing Bermudez with punches.

Somehow the card only got better from there, with Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald producing what will be very hard to beat for fight of the year. Lawler broke MacDonald’s noise early in the fight, blood covering the Canadians face for the rest of the fight.

Just when you thought Lawler was starting to control the fight MacDonald rocked the champ with a head kick that had him wobbling on his legs. Unfortunately for MacDonald Lawler has one of the best chins in the sport and just kept coming. In the end it came down to who could withstand the damage longer and MacDonald’s shattered nose took one punch too many early in the fifth round.

And what can be said about Conor McGregor? Yes he did struggle against a wrestler, but it was against the best wrestler in the whole division. Yes he did face Chad Mendes who only had two weeks to prepare, but Mendes stays fit year round.

But at the end of the day he built this card to be the biggest ever, he made people care about the featherweight division, he said he would finish Mendes inside the first two rounds and he delivered on that promise.

You don’t have to like the man, but you have to respect his work ethic.
