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. 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. Since then McGregor has been on a path of destruction.
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.
The Notorious One took to his Instagram and uploaded a video of himself finally walking for the first time since his ankle injury and no longer using crutches.
“Today is a momentous day!!! I walked for the first time since surgery. Bearing 50% of my big body weight! I also done it in the brand new “Irish Green” Virgil Louis Abloh’s! #youknowit @themaclife_style. A long way to go yet but a massive personal boost for me today! Thank you all for the continued support everyone. God bless, happy Saturday. @eliteorthosport @hmillipt @louisvuitton @lvmh @virgilabloh @psg @sergioramos @jacobandco @theblackforgeinn”
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 as he is determined to make a triumphant comeback.
