With all the hustle and bustle surrounding UFC 264 main event between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor, fans knew it was a shocking end to the light trilogy.
Just as the first round was falling, McGregor tried to kick and his foot was planted in the ground awkwardly, causing him to fall to the ground. Poirier threw some punches, but McGregor seemed to have escaped the first round, and then chaos ensued.
The fight ended due to a doctor’s interruption, as the replay showed that McGregor had broken a bone in his leg. Although the favorite, Poirier, emerged victorious, fans still could not believe the way the trilogy ended.
Internet star Logan Paul, who was present at the match, said the loss marked the end of McGregor’s career.
McGregor opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov also weighed in on the match.
Twitter users became aware of the amount of rubbish McGregor made before the race, especially how he said he would put Poirier on a stretcher. However, McGregor left the octagon on a stretcher.
McGregor said at the end of the fight that his rivalry with Poirier was not over and that some believed that the fights would continue, injuring or not.
