As I'm sure most of you are aware, "The Notorious" Conor McGregor made a triumphant return to the UFC octagon last weekend, knocking out his opponent, seasoned veteran Donald Cerrone, within 40 seconds of the very first round. It was a resounding statement from the Irishman (those shoulder charges!) and it will no doubt again spark his rise to the very highest echelon of the mixed martial arts arena. While some were surprised by the sheer dominance and efficacy of the victory, anyone who follows McGregor on Instagram will know that the 31-year-old had been steadfast in his preparation for this fight. And, whether you're a rank novice or the quintessence of a horological enthusiast, if you're into watches and you've visited McGregor's Instagram page, you will have also noticed that the man loves his watches. In fact, his collection is so impressive and vast, that we thought we'd classify his assemblage of timepieces in different "weight classes" and then pit them against one another. So, without further ado, let the fights begin! Lightweight Title: Rolex Day-Date 40 Ref.228235 Vs. Rolex Yacht-Master II Ref.116688 Winner: Rolex Day-Date 40 Ref.228235 OK, yes, these two solid 18k gold watches are anything but…
