The rivalry between Conor Mcgregor and Dustin Poirier reached a whole new level as it culminated in the main event of UFC 264, as the two fighters took each other on in the highly anticipated fight.
In a very shocking finish to the fight, 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.
There was also a lot of debate as to how Conor McGregor broke his ankle in the first place. A doctor would dismiss a claim made by Dustin Poirier regarding the injury. McGregor would then claim that he had stress fractures in his leg prior to the fight.
Now that he is out of surgery, Conor McGregor is on the road to recovery in a way only he knows how. McGregor recently took to his Instagram story which showed him enjoying poolside in Beverly Hills.
Conor McGregor could be seen having the time of his life as he was enjoying his time with friends and cocktails from what could be seen. The photos also showed the extent of his ankle injury as the cast on his left leg was wrapped all the way from his toes to his knee.
It was previously reported that Conor McGregor will be out of action until next year. 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 in good shape once he makes his return to the Octagon.
