Dustin Poirier Knocks Out Conor McGregor at UFC 257!!!!

Dustin Poirier Knocks Out Conor McGregor at UFC 257!!!!”

Others have wondered whether McGregor would be open to a re-match with Poirier, an idea bolstered by McGregor's own pledge to fight again in 2021 and his playful suggestion to his opponent that they should go up against each other again soon.

The Notorious was floored by a short right hook that was quickly followed up by a series of blows that left the Irishman with nowhere to go and gave the referee little choice but to stop the fight. Before that he had not stepped inside the octagon since October 2018 when he lost to Nurmagomedov.

Fighting back tears, Poirier added: "I didn't have a vehicle, she'd drive me to shows. I need activity, you don't get away with being inactive in this business". "I'm so many levels above these guys, I beat these guys, '" White said of Nurmagomedov.

"I'll take my licks". 1-1 Dustin, good man.

"I'm gutted, it's a tough one to swallow".

McGregor had warned Nurmagomedov "the world knows this war is not over", despite the Russian bowing out of the sport last October after extending his ideal professional record to 29-0 with a win over Justin Gaethje.

McGregor fought only one time in 2020. In a tweet directed at McGregor, his past rival, Nurmagomedov said this is what happens when you leave your old sparring partners behind and train with new members.

However, it was Poirier's strategy of kicking out at McGregor's right calf that proved most effective, upsetting the Irishman's rhythm and paving the way for the shock win.

Asked by BT Sport's Adam Catterall about whether he felt he showed lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov something special, a humble and honest Poirier said: "I'm not trying to impress him [Khabib], I'm just trying to feed my family".

McGregor fought retired unbeaten boxing great Floyd Mayweather in 2017, earning an estimated $30 million dollars in a blockbuster crossover bout.

For most fighters, a bad loss in the cage is perhaps best symbolized by the cruel sound of a door slamming in their face. But I think McGregor's striking accuracy, quickness and power will lead him to a victory on Fight Island. First off, I want to say Conor took this result very professionally. We're 1-1, maybe we have to do it again. The goal was to be technical, pick my shots and not brawl at all. I felt like I was boxing pretty well with Conor, he hit with some good counters.

"I'm just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I'm a natural born victor and yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up!" The former Bellator lightweight champion had a UFC debut for the ages, scoring a scintillating first-round stoppage over Dan Hooker. Once the fighters were back on their feet, Poirier started landing calf kicks, damaging McGregor's front leg.
