Conor McGregor breaks down his 40-second victory over Donald Cerrone

Conor McGregor has analysed the shots which saw him defeat Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds.

The former two-weight UFC champion returned to the octagon in January following a 15-month hiatus.

And he needed less than a minute to stop Cerrone and set himself up for a run at the lightweight title.

Alongside a video of the fight, McGregor wrote on Instagram : "Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they believe they can’t be struck and with shots they don’t understand to be shots.

"Look at the range of limbs and bone joints I strike with here alone. The hip, the bone of the clavicle, the infamous collar bone! The knee, the foot, the fist (both). A lovely array."

As with athletes across the world, McGregor is now in limbo during the coronavirus crisis.

He has been training in lockdown but is unlikely to return to competitive action until the autumn.

The UFC are planning to host fights on a private island next month but their biggest pay-per-view star is unlikely to compete.

President Dana White said: "We're getting the infrastructure put in now so I'm going to start doing the international fights too," he said.

"I won't be able to get international fighters, all of them, into the US, so I have a private island. I'm going to start flying them all into the private island and doing international fights from there. So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running.

"We've been working on this since the world fell apart and every day, when we'd work on something, we'd wake up the next day and the world would change. This is definitely the hardest thing I've ever had to do."
