The former college wrestler – who was born without lower limbs due to a rare birth disorder – won via unanimous decision and was praised for his amazing takedowns.

UFC legend McGregor joined in and shared the love for Clark, describing his win as “wild” and “fascinating”.

The Notorious tweeted: “Absolutely fascinating to hear about this man’s debut and now see it.

“Lighting entry on the low single. Wow! You should not connect to him in any shape or form. Frames only. Frame to strike. Fascinating!

“Congrats and so much respect to that man Zion Clark! MMA is the best sport!

“Can’t kick as he is grounded opponent. The only way to stop him is to develop KO-ending shots mid-transitions in grappling. Very few on the planet possess this skill.

“And to 3/4 way downward punch a jab there is just no power. Look at opponent’s attempt before the shot. Wild!”

Clark is grateful for McGregor’s praise and promised fans this is just the start of his burgeoning MMA career.

He responded by saying: “Appreciate the love and respect McGregor this is just the start for me I’m excited to see how far I can take my fight game!

“I proved the doubters wrong in wrestling becoming an All American and D1 Wrestler. All respect ”
