Conor McGregor lost his rematch against Dustin Poirier after a peculiar finish to the first round in which McGregor seemed to break either his lower left leg or his lower leg. As McGregor and Poirier swung at one another, McGregor staggered in reverse and broke a bone without Poirier hitting him.
In a post-battle talk with, Poirier said that he trusted McGregor broke his lower leg before in the battle — when Poirier effectively safeguarded a kick — and that the break was finished when McGregor staggered in reverse. McGregor, utilizing unprintable language, conflicted.
“This person is a sleaze ball, man,” Poirier said about McGregor, furious about prefight rubbish talk that he accepted over and again went too far.
Prior to the odd closure, the battle was a barnburner. McGregor and Poirier showed up ready to brawl and kicking, acquainted with one another from two past matchups. Poirier scored a mid-round takedown, and saved McGregor on the ground for the greater part of the remainder of the round, handling a whirlwind of elbows to McGregor’s face that left his ear wicked.
McGregor has now battled multiple times over the most recent five years and lost multiple times, remembering two for a line to Dustin Poirier. The U.F.C’s. lightweight division is one of its most profound, and with a messed up bone and no make way back to the top, McGregor is foundering.
Poirier will probably battle Charles Oliveira, who was sitting cageside, for the lightweight belt. Yet, given the U.F.C’s history for bringing in enormous cash battles, it’s anything but impossible that Poirier and McGregor will battle eventually once more.
