UFC Superstar Conor McGregor reveals that he knew his leg was not in a good condition and that it might break during his fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier fought their trilogy fight at UFC 264. The fighting series between them was leveled at 1-1 before entering the trilogy fight. The fight wasn’t going well for Conor in the first round as he was taken down and got beat up by Poirier. He also landed some good elbows from the ground. But at the end of the first round, Conor McGregor snapped his feet and his ankle bone broke resulting in the fight being stopped. Dustin was declared the winner by TKO via doctor stoppage.

Conor McGregor recently Tweeted about the fight and revealed what went down before and during his fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

“Same leg, same spot. I attribute it to why I wasn’t in as much shock as Chris/Anderson where. I knew something may happen in advance. Chris was upset with my quote. Felt I was aiming at him. I was not. If any consolation to my reaction, It was because id a heads up it may snap.”

In my last camp I’d a severely damaged left leg. Many of my sessions consisted of starting in open guard bottom. And staying there. Full rounds remaining on bottom. I was beating people up until they backed away from me. It then translated to the fight. True story. @netflix.”

“Really nasty elbows and upkicks for sure. That or maybe a really annoying blue bottle was around him after the fight, lol. Make no mistake they are not looking forward to what is coming. I will be back and it will be settled. Once and for all.”

“His head was sorer, my leg was sorer. I feel good on that. Not to say his leg wasn’t busted either tho. I had that thigh well minced. I feel it’s just simply not settled yet. Is the fairest response I can give.”

“I’m very pleased with my ground attacks from bottom, at present. I butchered dude from the bottom, use your eyes. He backed away from me! I’ve now developed a more ferocious version to Nates ground game. If Nate goes down, no one follows. They won’t follow me now either. Watch!”

With that being said, given how well the PPV sold for the rematch, it’s highly likely that we will get to see the pair fight each other for the fourth time in 2022.
