After losing by TKO to Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor has been turned into a global meme. In perhaps one of the most ironic twists in internet history, Nate Robinson has decided to join in on the fun and mock the former champion.
When YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul was returning to the squared circle, he faced Robinson in the co-main event to the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. PPV event. In the end, the NBA dunk champ would be knocked out cold in the second round.
What followed after this, was an onslaught of internet memes, utterly mocking Robinson and his knockout. Like most trendy memes, it only lasted for a few weeks, but everyone made fun of Nate in that moment.
