Former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight champion Conor McGregor made his long-awaited return in grand fashion on Saturday night in Las Vegas, stopping Cowboy Cerrone 40 seconds into Round 1 by TKO when the referee halted the match.
Cerrone (36-14, one no-contest) is the UFC’s all-time winner and a client of NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick’s KHI Management team. Harvick and Cerrone go back years, and the UFC fighter was Havick’s first client when he launched the full-service sports and celebrity marketing agency
“He’s actually our original client,” Harvick told NASCAR.com earlier in the week. “And really the reason that KHI Management started was because of Donald Cerrone and him asking the question ‘Why couldn’t you represent me?’ That’s really what started our company, just drinking a beer beside the bus at Texas Motor Speedway. It’s evolved from that into what it is today; he’s responsible for the management company even starting.”
