Poirier Emerges Victorious Over Connor McGregor In A Trilogy Clash Via TKO

Rest assured, Conor McGregor is a television magnet, be it love or hate that he garners. The intensity escalated on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Dustin Poirier faced McGregor for the third time in what seemed like their final showdown, with the MMA star succumbing to a first-round doctor stoppage due to a leg break. Poirier, who endured taunts and kicks from McGregor throughout the lead-up, showed no mercy towards his adversary, asserting that he had McGregor on the ropes even before the leg injury occurred.

The matter seems settled on Poirier’s end, yet McGregor begs to differ. The possibility of a future rematch lingers, adding to the suspense. While the fight may not have met expectations, the aftermath delivered the anticipated drama. UFC 264 sets the stage for Poirier’s showdown with Charles Oliveira for the lightweight championship, as McGregor aims to bounce back from his setbacks. In other bouts of the night, Gilbert Burns bested Stephen Thompson in the co-main event, and ex-NFL player Greg Hardy faced defeat just over a minute into his clash with Tai Tuivasa.
