Video: Watch UFC owner Frank Fertitta slam belt after Conor McGregor knocks out Jose Aldo

SLAM! (da duh duh, da duh duh)

U mad?

Conor McGregor unified the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight titles last Saturday night (Dec. 12, 2015) by knocking out Jose Aldo in the UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) main event (watch it), inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And UFC co-owner Frank Fertitta was either really happy, or really pissed off.

According to the other Fertitta, McGregor -- who has yet to taste defeat inside the UFC Octagon -- is great for the mixed martial arts (MMA) business because "Notorious" can move the pay-per-view (PPV) needle and shut down an entire country.

His next appearance is expected to be a featherweight title defense against Frankie Edgar, unless the promotion grants his request to jump up to lightweight and challenge for the 155-pound strap, in which case Fertitta would have two belts to slam next March.
