After fracturing his ankle against Poirier in devastating fashion at UFC 264, McGregor has been told his career is gone.
It happened at the end of the first round, when the Irishman launched a full-force blow only to land on his ankle with all of his weight.
As a result of the odd accident, it entirely snapped, forcing a doctor to halt working as the bell rung.
It means Poirier has emerged as the ultimate winner of their trilogy fight, having won the last two fights between the adversaries.
There will be those, including McGregor, who believe a fourth bout is on the way.
However, the ankle snap was a bad one, and many believe that this is the end of the road for Notorious, who could take years to recover.
The tweets were headed by YouTube sensation Logan Paul, whose brother Jake is attempting to stir up a rivlary, who wrote: “Damn. It’s incredible to see a star climb to such heights only to drop to the bottom a few years later. To be honest, it’s a little depressing. Conor McGregor’s career should be remembered.”
“The McGregor era is over, imo,” said one UFC fan. What an adventure. Mma was the one who got it to where it is now. “Wonderful job.”
“Conor McGregor is finished,” one supporter wrote. Concentrate on #UFC264 Proper Twelve.”
“I feel like McGregor isn’t the same as he used to be, and I have a feeling his ufc career is almost over,” a fourth stated.
“RIP Conor Mcgregor,” wrote another. Incredibly successful career. We hoped for a comeback, but he’s gone. But it’s over because he’s been awful for a while.”
“Sorry, bud, but I believe your professional career is done. This fan commented, “You’ve accomplished a lot, but your time is up.”
