Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier’s intense rivalry reached a boiling point and it culminated in the main event of 264, as both competitors were out looking for blood.
In their third fight together, the expectations were certainly high as fans wanted to see who would end up becoming the winner. However, the ending to the match was certainly a shocking one.
After the dust settled, 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.
While speaking to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Khabib Nurmagomedov stated that if claimed that if McGregor and Poirier fight each other 100 times, then Poirier would come out on top every time.
“He had chance like second fight, Abu Dhabi, here, nothing happened. Like what’s going to happen? Judges gave for Dustin Poirier like 10-8. He like mauled him in this round. I think if they fight 100 times, Dustin going to beat him 100 times. If you want to come back okay, make him fight one more time with Dustin Poirier and finish this guy, that’s it. What UFC gonna do with him? or maybe make him fight Nate Diaz, okay. But both of them, I think he’s gonna lose.”
Conor McGregor will be squaring off against Dustin Poirier once again after he makes a full recovery. We wonder if he’ll actually be able to win next time.
