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.
Ahead of UFC 264, Conor McGregor engaged in a lot of trash-talking and often took it too far, especially when it came to Dustin Poirier’s wife Jolie Poirier. While speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Logan Paul and his friends Mike Majlak and George Janko talked about Conor McGregor’s loss.
George Janko pointed out that a lot of McGregor’s trash-talk looked like it was influenced by Jake Paul. Logan Paul then went on to accuse McGregor of trying to copy Jake Paul in order to go viral.
“I will have to say, he’s taking a lot of things from Jake. It’s very copy and paste. I feel that maybe he’s training the fight and somebody’s doing the PR for him, who’s like tweeting and saying some sh*t and telling him what to say. Because there’s no way, he’s too smart bro. He’s not gonna rip that much. George Janko said.
“I disagree. There’s a book called ‘Steal Like an Artist’. I do it all the time. You take inspo from something that inspires you and if you are the artist or the showman, sometimes subconsciously you’ll do something that has influenced you because of what you saw in the past and Jake’s forte at this moment of time is his ability to market and make sh*t go viral,” Logan Paul said.
The fourth fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was already confirmed by Dana White. We will have to wait and see if Conor McGregor will be using his time well and make a triumphant return to the Octagon.
