The long-standing rivalry between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier remains one of the most highly discussed topics in the MMA world. It culminated in their fight at UFC 264 on July 10th.
The main event truly had a big fight feel as many fans were excited to see which competitor would end up victorious. In the end, Dustin Poirier would win the fight in a shocking manner after Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round. Poirier won the fight via TKO.
The Notorious one went under the knife in a 3.5-hour-long surgery for his fractured tibia. After the surgery was over, Conor McGregor took to Twitter and uploaded a video where he provided fans with an update on his condition.
Conor McGregor revealed that he will be on crutches for the next six weeks and will then focus on building himself back again.
“What’s up, fight fans? ‘The Notorious’ here. Just out of the surgery room. Everything went [according] to plan. Everything went perfect. I’m feeling tremendous. We got six weeks on the crutch, now. And then, we begin to build back. I want to thank all the fans all around the world for your messages of support. I hope you all enjoyed the show. I want to thank all the fans in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena, 21,800 fans in attendance. The place was absolutely electric. It was a hell of a first round. It would’ve been nice to get into the second round and then, you know, to see what’s what. But, it is what it is. That’s the nature of the business. A clean break of the tibia, and it was not to be.”
The fourth fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was already confirmed by UFC President Dana White. We certainly wonder if Conor McGregor will be able to win the upcoming fight or not.
