Can McGregor Win in the First Minute?

Conor McGregor UFC

What can Conor McGregor do next? Well, for starters he’s looking to add the lightweight title to his resume, but a brash prediction made at the UFC 196 press conference has fight fans debating if McGregor has a quick finish in-store for Rafael dos Anjos.

McGregor boldly claimed that he would “dust Rafael inside one minute,” which has prompted online sportsbook Bovada to create a prop on the possibility of the prediction coming to light. The book has Yes at +700, and No coming back at -2000.

The proclamation might seem far-fetched, but his 13-second KO of previous pound-for-pound king Jose Aldo needs to be accounted for when considering if he can actually accomplish the feat. It was the third time in his career that he ended a fight inside of a minute. Also of note, McGregor has six finishes inside of the 1:12 mark.

dos Anjos has suffered just one KO defeat in his career, and that was in the third round of a fight in 2008. He’s never lost a fight in the first round, but neither did Aldo and look how that turned out.

If you believe in the power of McGregor’s predictions and think he has what it takes to pull off lightning quick finishes in back-to-back fights, then the +700 value will be hard to pass up.
