McGregor began the fight on a pleasant note as he landed some astonishing power kicks to Poirier‘s legs. He executed his game plan to a fair extent for the first couple of minutes in the fight. But things turned around when ‘The Diamond’ took this fight to the ground.

The former UFC double champ was on the verge of choking Poirier out. However, the American fighter, who’s a ground game elite, didn’t let McGregor do the same. In fact, Poirier showed some cracking ground and pound, thus landing some ferocious elbows and right hands.

As the first round was on the brink of completion, McGregor broke his ankle and he immediately went down to the canvas. After the doctor’s checkup, the referee stopped this contest to save the Irishman from any further damage.

Will Conor McGregor really bounce back from his UFC 264 setback?

‘The Notorious’ showed his stern hunger in this fight. Furthermore, he put in some extensive amount of hard work to prepare for this fight, but he eventually couldn’t get the results he wanted.
