Over the weekend, Matt Brown secured a first-round knockout against Court McGee at 42 years of age. With his latest finish, Brown is now tied with Derrick Lewis for the UFC record of most knockouts of all time.

As Brown pledged to continue his career in the octagon, Conor McGregor took the time to chime in on Twitter saying, “Matt Brown, at 42 years of age, now holds the joint highest KO’s inside the UFC with 13KO’s. Him and “The Beast” Lewis are tied. I hold 8 KO’s inside the UFC currently, at 34 years of age. I’m getting this record.” Brown responded to Mcgregor’s comments by wishing him Happy Mother’s Day and challenging him to a bout. He also comically challenged the 265-pound heavyweight Derrick Lewis for the record.

McGregor had seven of his eight knockouts during his first four years in the UFC (2013-16), with his only other KO coming in 2020 in a bout against Donald Cerrone. After a devastating leg injury in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier, it was uncertain whether he would ever return. However, as mentioned as part of his upcoming Netflix docuseries and The Ultimate Fighter promos, McGregor is looking to reclaim his spot at the top of the division, beginning with a bout against Michael Chandler. Time will tell whether McGregor can return to his former glory.
