Conor McGregor promised an epic showdown with Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 on Sunday morning - and he didn't disappoint.

The Irishman pulled off a stunning four-punch combo in the second round to win by TKO and become the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously.

Following the bout, in typical McGregor fashion, the 28-year-old explained how the outcome was inevitable and refused to apologise for his recent behaviour.

"Not one bit was surprising, they are not at my level," he said.

"They have got to have size, reach, length, you have got to have some attributes. If you come in any way equal to me I am going to rip your head off, it happens every time.

"Eddie is a solid competitor, Eddie is a warrior, but he shouldn't have been in here with me and that's just the truth of it.

"It has never been done before. Everything I have dreamed is a reality.

"I have spent a lot time of time slating everyone in the company. I have ridiculed the entire roster and I want to take this opportunity to apologise... to absolutely nobody!"

UFC fans and the media alike are now speculating who McGregor's next opponent will be, but they will have to wait a long time before seeing him in the Octagon again.

That's because, in a post-match interview, 'The Notorious' confirmed he will now take a break from UFC after revealing he and wife Dee Devlin are expecting their first child in May 2017.

"I'm going to be a daddy early next year," he told journalists at Madison Square Garden, per the Daily Mail. "I'm crapping my jocks!

"It's going to mess with my head. I just want to have this baby and take some time."

It just keeps getting better and better for McGregor.

Following the announcement, McGregor added how he wants part ownership of UFC to ensure he and his family are "set for life".

"I've got a family now, so I want ownership. I want an equal share," he continued.

"Whoever owns this company needs to come to me and give me a real slice. Bring me in on this for real. Make me an owner. I need to be set for life."
