The rivalry between Conor Mcgregor and Dustin Poirier reached a new level as it culminated in the main event of UFC 264. The two fighters took each other on in the highly anticipated fight which ended in a tough break for Notorious.
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.
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. McGregor already previously revealed that he is no longer wearing a cast on his leg and also started putting in work at the gym.
While speaking to TMZ Sports during a recent outing at a Los Angeles hotspot, Conor Mcgregor made it clear that he’s recovering in rapid fashion and will be back in no time.
“Three weeks, three days — it’s been good. It’s going to be some recovery. It’s going to be some recovery!”
We will have to wait and see what shape Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon as McGregor is expected to be out of action for a year.
