01:49 PM ET 08.21 | Irish featherweight star Conor McGregor reeled off his tenth straight victory at last weekend's UFC Fight Night 26 card during the launch of FOX Sports 1, but it was one of the least spectacular performances of his career. It was the first time that McGregor (14-2) scored a win by decision and he was less than pleased with his performance. After the fight, McGregor said that he felt a pop in his knee that forced him to rethink his strategy after his knee was unsteady in the stand-up game. In the end, McGregor still got the win and continues to work his way up the rankings. According to reports, McGregor suffered a minor sprain of his LCL. He is set to undergo an MRI in Los Angeles later this week. He is targeting a return to the octagon at the UFC's year-end show in Las Vegas at UFC 168 against Diego Brandao.
