The rivalry between Conor Mcgregor and Dustin Poirier reached a whole new level as it culminated in the main event of UFC 264, as the two fighters took each other on in the highly anticipated fight.
In a very shocking finish to the fight, Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round and Dustin Poirier was declared the winner via TKO after the fight ended due to doctor’s stoppage.
Many fans felt dejected by the outcome of the fight, but also made sure to laugh at Conor McGregor failing to win due to the unexpected injury. He was carried out on a stretcher, a fact that didn’t leave Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The Notorious One took to Instagram and in his signature confident style, insisted that the MMA world needs someone like him. It was a short, yet bold take given by McGregor.
