10 Most Unique Fight Finishes In UFC History

10. Conor McGregor Shoulder Barges His Way To Victory (UFC 246)

After falling to arch-rival Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, the former Lightweight and Featherweight champ Conor McGregor chose to lay low for a while.

McGregor's version of laying low, of course, involved him smacking an old man in the face and smashing another bloke's phone. Each to their own.

However, once he cleaned up his act and finally decided that he wanted to re-establish himself as a top dog in the Octagon, a return clash with Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone was booked for UFC 246.

In the lead up to the fight, much was made of the multitude of ways that Cerrone could beat McGregor... if he was able to get out of that first round.

You see, 'Cowboy' was a notoriously (see what I did there?) slow starter and the Mac was well aware of this chink in his armour.

Flying at the UFC veteran as soon as the fight was underway, the Irishman let loose a venomous left and followed that up with a thumping knee. But, that was just the set up.

McGregor latched onto Cerrone and unleashed a flurry of shoulder strikes which quickly busted up 'Cowboy's nose.

Clearly shook up by this unique assault, Cerrone was soon rocked again by a head kick and pummelled into the side of the cage.

Victory was McGregor's upon his epic return, but in the most unusual way imaginable.
