Conor McGregor


The most highly anticipated fight in UFC this year was between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier that took place inside a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

McGregor was looking to avenge his KO loss to Poirier and prove to the world that he’s still got it in him while Poirier had his eyes set on a title fight in the Lightweight division. But things didn’t go quite the way many expected as we saw McGregor’s left leg giving out in the finals seconds of the opening round which gave Dustin a win via doctor’s stoppage.

The Notorious looked sharp as the fight began and was landing heavy low kicks but things changed their course when Poirier completed a takedown which totally opened up the fight. While staying in guard position, McGregor attempted a guillotine choke on The Diamond, but the jiu-jitsu specialist did well to come out of it and land some heavy elbows which opened up McGregor’s left ear. Once both the fighters were back on their feet, they both went to land punches but neither of them connected, and while McGregor was trying to get back to stance his left ankle completely folded under his left leg. Without taking any further risks, referee Herb Dean stopped the match to declare Dustin Poirier the winner of the intense trilogy.

McGregor gave his post-fight interview from the mat insisting that he was winning the fight and went on with his usual trash talk. He said, “I was boxing the bleeding head off him, kicking the bleeding legs off him, the usual shite, trying to go the distance, this is not over if I have to take this outside, it’s all outside, I don’t give a bullshit. Your wife is in my DMs, I’ll chat to you later on. Hit me back up. I’ll chat later on. I’ll be at the after-party at the Wynn nightclub. You look in buts you little h*e”

While McGregor was going on with his trash talk, the #1 contender in the LW division kept his cool and responded in a classy way. He said, “This guy was saying he’s going to murder me and all kinds of stuff, he’s going to kill me, I’m going to leave here in a coffin. You don’t talk like that to people. Karma’s not a bitch. She’s a mirror, and this guy’s said the wrong shit and I’ve been busting my ass. Sometimes these things happen. Nah, I beat the guy.”

What’s next for Dustin Poirer?

In the post-fight press conference UFC President Dana White said, “It’s brutal. It’s not the way you want to see fights end, Dustin Poirier will fight for the title, and when Conor is healed and ready to go, you do the rematch, I guess. I don’t know.”

It’s pretty clear that a fourth fight is on its way but for now, Dustin Poirier will be taking on Charles Oliviera for the Lightweight title sometime before the end of 2021.
