Conor McGregor’s fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 256 completely stunned the entire UFC. Conor vs Dustin 2 happened on the 3rd week of January at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. It wasn’t a bad blood, or a grudge match and it was not like that there is any unfinished business.
Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier is a bad man. The previous interval lightweight victory indicated he’s just as extreme and ground-breaking as any man in the division on Saturday night at UFC 257 with an exciting stoppage of Conor McGregor in the second round. Poirier endure some early shots from McGregor prior to getting a takedown and in the end battering his rival’s lead calf.
McGregor and Dustin exchanged punches back in 2014 at UFC 178, featherweight division. 32-year-olds seems to have matured and have developed mutual respect for each other- they were showing respect to their opponents at any media showoff before they touched the gloves once again at Octagon.
However, The harm to McGregor’s calf wound up being up to flip the battle as Poirier pushed forward with an attack that dropped McGregor and prompted the stoppage in the second round. Poirier, who is left in limbo with UFC president Dana White insisting Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will be back for one more battle in spite of reporting his retirement in October, believes he should be the champion if Nurmagomedov is good and gone.
