Ok, so this hurts me to write. I am a big Conor McGregor fan, I paid the $40 for the PPV and I was hoping for a Mystic mac win. I thought he looked focussed and looked like his old self with the trash talk. But......
Despite coming into the fight noticeably different, Conor McGregor was once again delivered an unwanted end for his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
In the final moments of a competitive first round, the two fighters met for a striking exchange which saw the two miss but “The Notorious” falling back in pain. The Irish MMA superstar broke his leg after stepping back to reset after throwing a left hand. Referee Herb Dean immediately stepped in and called an end to the fight due to doctor stoppage.
The anticlimactic end to the highly-anticipated end to the main event shocked fans in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier continued to be at outs with one another following the stoppage leading many to wonder if their rivalry will be over with the unfortunate ending to the trilogy fight.
So is this is for Conor McGregor? it's a pretty bad injury to come back from. Time will tell!
