Poirier Wins Trilogy Fight Over McGregor By TKO

Jonathan Grant | July 11th, 2021

Conor McGregor is simply can’t miss television. Like him or hate him. Saturday night in Las Vegas only added more fuel to that particular fire. Taking on Dustin Poirier for the third time, in seemingly the final bout between the two, the Notorious one of MMA fell by first-round doctor stoppage when he broke his leg. Poirier, who had been kicked by the Irishman and taunted throughout the buildup, took no sympathy toward his rival, stating that he had McGregor rocked prior to the leg-breaking.

As far as he is concerned, the matter is closed, but McGregor insisted it wasn’t. Who knows if the two will meet again in the future and maybe the fight wasn’t as climactic as we’d have hoped. But the fallout is just what you’d expect and hope for if you love drama. UFC 264 ensures Poirier will now take on Charles Oliveira for the lightweight title while McGregor will look to recover and rebuild following years of failures. In other action on the evening, Gilbert Burns defeated Stephen Thompson in the co-main event and former NFL player Greg Hardy was knocked out just over a minute into his bout with Tai Tuivasa.
