Conor McGregor plans to make more history before his UFC career is over and done with.

McGregor, the first fighter to hold two UFC championships simultaneously, tweeted Sunday morning that he intends on setting the record for most knockout finishes in promotion history.

The Irishman's forecast came after veteran welterweight Matt Brown knocked out Court McGee at UFC Charlotte on Saturday to tie Derrick Lewis' knockout record of 13.

McGregor needs five more UFC knockouts to tie the mark, as he currently owns eight. He won both his championships - the featherweight title against Jose Aldo in 2015 and the lightweight belt against Eddie Alvarez in 2016 - via that method.

The 34-year-old hasn't stepped into the Octagon since a TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021. He recently filmed a coaching stint on "The Ultimate Fighter 31" and is expected to return to action opposite Michael Chandler later this year.
