Conor McGregor went down after the first round of fighting during his UFC 264 bout with Dustin Poirier, and he wanted to make sure that they announced it was a “referee stoppage.” It turns out that Notorious didn’t go into that fight at 100%.

McGregor vs Poirier IV will happen as soon as Conor is healed up. In the meantime, all we have is his last fight to judge him by. According to his trainer John Kavanagh, McGregor’s ankle was already hurt when he went to Las Vegas for that big fight.

During an Instagram Q&A with Wimp 2 Warrior, the famous trainer revealed that Conor McGregor hurt himself while training and they had it checked out. That might have had a “small part to play” in weakening his leg before that break.

“A little bit of that ankle injury has been aggravated during camp. We got a scan on it. Did that have a small part to play in weakening it? I don’t know. We were (with a doctor) a couple weeks ago to get a scan on the ankle. … There might’ve been something in there. It would seem unusual that a young, healthy, fit man could wrap his foot around an elbow and (break it) without there being something (wrong) there before. You can play those guessing games all day long.”


Conor McGregor was not a happy man at all after UFC 264. Now he is getting surgery and healing up from an injury he never wanted.

We’re sure Conor’s plans for today were ruined because of how his fight ended. Now we will have to see how long it takes for Notorious to heal up. In the meantime, Conor McGregor might continue taking shots at Dustin Poirier’s wife on Twitter to keep the feud going.
