Scorecards are used to keep track of progress. Conor McGregor was urged to ‘humble up’ by Dustin Poirier, who dominated him.
For the second time in seven months, Dustin Poirier defeated Conor McGregor by stoppage.
When Conor McGregor was injured, he claimed he was winning his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier. The judges’ scorecards, on the other hand, begged to differ.
“I was boxing the blood skull off him and kicking the bleeding leg off him!” an indignant McGregor exclaimed after the battle.
The official judges’ scorecards, on the other hand, portray a totally different story than the one told by the Irish superstar.
Poirier won Round 1 with all three judges from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Poirier won the first round 10-9, according to judge Sal D’Amato, although fellow judges Derek Cleary and Junichiro Kamijo both thought the American dominated the round enough to receive 10-8 marks.
Former UFC welterweight Ben Askren supported up that assessment on social media, tweeting, “Dustin won R1 10-8.” Get genuine, all you Conor aficionados.”
After the bout, Askren wasn’t the only combatant who took to social media to express his thoughts.
Former light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones was among many who wished McGregor luck in his rehabilitation.
“Man, I’m not sure he’ll fight again after this…” Jones penned the following.
“Get well soon, champ; this is awful.”
Others, though, remarked on the irony of some of McGregor’s previous remarks coming back to haunt him.
“Crazy to think that at the end of the weigh-in Conor said he (Poirier) would be brought out on a stretcher,” former two-division champion Daniel Cormier tweeted. Conor is presently being carried away on a stretcher.
“Man, this game we’re playing is insane!!!! Hats out to Lafayette’s Diamond!!”
Rafael Dos Anjos, however, had a more direct remark for McGregor, writing on Twitter, “When I BROKE my foot before our bout, this idiot made fun of my injury…
and had done so for many years.
“Take a sip of your own medication and humble yourself.”
Former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor’s adversary, also weighed in, writing, “Good always defeats evil.”
“I’m ecstatic for @DustinPoirier. I’m hoping you’ll have the belt before the end of the year.”
