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
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 provided an update on his condition, stating that he will be on crutches for 6 weeks.
Many celebrated Conor McGregor’s loss and that includes Jake Paul, who had a $100k necklace made to celebrate the loss. While speaking to The Schmo, Jake Paul talked about Conor McGregor’s loss, stating that his ‘Sleepy McGregor’ chain was a voodoo doll that manifested McGregor going out on a stretcher.
“I don’t know if it happens, you know. He’s a bit washed up. You know, Conor McGregor needs Jake Paul more than Jake Paul needs Conor McGregor. He’s on a downward spiral. He’s one and three in the past five years. And I think my chain sort of was a voodoo doll, and I manifested him going out on a stretcher, you know, ‘Sleepy McGregor’.”
The fourth fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was already confirmed by UFC President Dana White, but McGregor won’t be able to compete until next year. We also wonder if McGregor will square off against Dustin Poirier eventually or not.
