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, Conor McGregor behaved like a sore loser as he went after Dustin Poirier’s wife Jolie Poirier yet again. His unprofessional behavior drew the ire of fans on social media.
UFC legend Ronda Rousey actually came to the defence of Conor McGregor. praising him for promoting his next match despite suffering a horrific injury.
Now it seems Rousey has doubled down on her support of McGregor, as she took to Twitter and told fans that if they want to see sportsmanship and idealism, they can go watch the Olympics.
If you want sportsmanship and idealism go watch the @Olympics – lord knows they need the view
This was a reference to Coor McGregor being unprofessional and going after Dustin Poirier’s wife after UFC 264. McGregor will be out of action for a long time but will definitely face off against Dustin Poirier in their fourth fight together once he makes his return.
