Watch the full fight video highlights for the UFC Fight Night: Dublin main event between Conor McGregor and Diego Brandao.

The second of two UFC events this week culminated in a fantastic main event between Ireland's own Conor McGregor and Brazil's Diego Brandao. The two featherweights fought for under a round, but it was an entertaining one that saw McGregor display his ground work before putting striking clinic to close out the fight with a TKO.

Here is Dallas Winston's play-by-play for the fight:

McGregor wheels out a spinning kick and both fighters deploy salvos of leather with both hands. Brandao clinches up and puts McGregor on the fence but McGregor circles to switch positions. Knee to the ribs for Brandao but he's taken down with a trip. McGregor postures up and Brandao boots him off with both feet, then dodges a foot lock when he jumps back into Brandao's guard. Brandao angles for an armbar and McGregor stacks him to break the grip.

Half butterfly for Brandao with good posture control. McGregor gives him enough room to push off and escape but McGregor tags Brandao with a shot on his way back up. Roundhouse kick for McGregor but he narrowly avoids a Brandao haymaker. McGregor thuds a left hand right through Brandao's defense and the sheer power of impact breaks Brandao's guard open, allowing McGregor to slice a long left through the opening that meets Brandao's jaw. Brandao wilts to the canvas in slow-motion where McGregor unloads left hands until the ref pulls him off.
