UFC 257: Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier RECAP: McGregor is knocked out.
McGregor vs Poirier LIVE – From Fight Island, Express Sport gives you live coverage of UFC 257: McGregor vs Poirier.
McGregor vs. Poirier at UFC 257. Conor McGregor, the former two-division champion, fights Dustin Poirier in a lightweight match-up on the promotion’s first pay-per-view card of 2021.
It’ll take some time for this one to set in. First and foremost, nothing should be taken away from Dustin Poirier.
That was a stunning finish, demonstrating his boxing prowess and remarkable progress since the first bout.
Before he was blown away by a flurry of blows, McGregor’s leg was completely dead. That was amazing, to give credit where credit is due.
As The Notorious correctly pointed out, his inactivity was a big disadvantage, and the lightweight category had no mercy.
He put in a lot of effort in the build-up to this bout, but he’ll have to start over before his next battle.
Poirier will now seek a rematch with Khabib if he can persuade him to come out of retirement, but considering his sensational UFC debut, the Michael Chandler fight could be the one to make.
That concludes Express Sport’s coverage. Thank you for coming to see us…
The American claimed, “I think I showed a little bit of counter-boxing here.”
“I know Max Holloway thinks he’s the finest boxer in the world, but I’ve beaten him twice. I admire him and am a big fan, but I beat him twice and felt like I was boxing quite well with Conor.
“He hit me some terrific counter twos, and we knew his counter-two timing was some of the finest in the game, but I just don’t give a f**k man,” he said. I’ve come to win.”
This is what happens when you switch teams, leave your sparring partners who helped you become a champion, and spar with small children who are far removed from reality.
