Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier faced off against each other in their third fight together in the main event of UFC 264, in what was a highly anticipated fight, to say the least.
The main event truly had a big fight feel as many fans were excited to see which competitor would end up victorious. In a shocking turn of events, Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round, leading to Dustin Poirier winning the fight via TKO.
After the conclusion of the fight, Dustin Poirier claimed that McGregor broke his ankle when he threw a leg kick that was checked by Poirier, which was dismissed by a doctor.
While speaking to TMZ after the fight, Dustin Poirier was asked about a rematch against McGregor. Poirier also commented on Conor McGregor’s horrific injury.
“Anything is possible. I just have to get with my family, and see what’s next. You never wanna see someone injured like that. The recovery is gonna be hard and losing.”
Conor McGregor already had successful surgery and will be facing off against Dustin Poirier yet again once he makes a full recovery. We will have to wait and see just when that will be taking place.
