Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor did check out the fight and commented on what went down via Twitter:
Unlucky T.J on your attempt at Champ Champ status.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) January 20, 2019
Respect for your weight cut. I have been there and it is not easy.
Unlucky Henry on your attempt at fastest K.O in a UFC title fight.
I have been there, and I still am.
Congrats on the win.
The O.G Champ Champ.
McGregor, who last competed at lightweight, has already dropped ten pounds and competed down a division at featherweight. Which is similar to how Dillashaw dropped ten pounds to competed a division down at flyweight at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn.
The Irishman also holds the record for the fastest knockout in UFC title fight history, defeating Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds to win the UFC Featherweight Title at UFC 194. Cejudo would win at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn via a 32 second TKO, falling short of McGregor’s record by 19 seconds.
Neither Dillashaw or Cejudo have responded to the comments made by McGregor.
