Video: The four-second Conor McGregor KO Jose Aldo should have watched

Conor McGregor stunned the fighting world when he took just 13 seconds to knockout Jose Aldo at UFC 194 this past Saturday night.

But, whilst McGregor's Brazilian opponent was left devastated with how the brief battle for the featherweight title panned out, he can take some solace in knowing he isn't the Irishman's fastest KO victim.

Not the first time

McGregor himself told reporters following his UFC 194 win that he has a "four-second knockout on my resumé." And the new king of UFC wasn't lying. Scroll down to watch the 27-year-old's fastest ever MMA KO.

Before Jose Aldo, there was Patrick Doherty. In light of what happened to Aldo over the weekend, grainy footage of McGregor disposing of his fellow countryman back in 2011 is doing the rounds.

And, considering the eerily similar method McGregor uses to get the double quick knockout, the Brazilian must be wishing he'd seen the Immortal Fighting Championship bout before he stepped into the Octagon at the MGM Grand.

Early start

McGregor reportedly earned north of $250,000-per-second in his rapid win over Aldo. His four-second KO against Doherty, regardless of how impressive it was, is unlikely to have brought home even a fraction of that total.

Nevertheless, adding a 16-second stop of Mike Woods (also in 2011), Conor McGregor has proven numerous times that he is a force to be reckoned with in the early stages of fights.

Whilst some fighters opt to test the water early on, he sees the opening seconds of a fight as an opportunity for victory.
