Both fighters entered the fight with great gusto, and McGregor looked like he was focusing more on MMA this time around. However, Poirier got a few good kicks in and ultimately got ‘Notorious’ to the ground. McGregor defended well till almost the end of the round. However, when the fighters got back to their feet, they threw punches at each other and they both missed.

At that moment McGregor’s leg snapped, and he fell to the ground in pain. Ultimately referee Herb Dean ended the fight, handing Poirier the win. McGregor clearly wasn’t happy with the result and talked about the same after the fight ended.

He said, ‘I was boxing the bleeding head off him, kicking the bleeding leg off him. This is not over. If we have to take this outside, we will. We don’t give a bullock. There was no check, there was nothing checked. Your wife is in my Dm’s”
