Former UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje loved seeing former two-division champion Conor McGregor get knocked out by Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 257.

Conor McGregor suffered the first-ever stoppage loss of his MMA career against Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 257, which took place at the Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor in the second round to avenge his loss to the Irishmen from their first fight which took place back in 2014 at UFC 178. Back then, McGregor had knocked out Poirier in the first round.

Poirier executed his game plan perfectly and invested in low calf kicks early in the fight and also managed to score a takedown early in the fight. While he also ate a couple of hard shots from McGregor early on, he ultimately the calf kicks caught up to the Irishmen and he got knocked out for the first time in his professional MMA career.

While McGregor suffered his first career knockout loss, the former interim champion couldn’t help but feel good about the whole situation.

I think he’s an elite fighter,” Justin Gaethje recently told ESPN in an interview. “What do they got him ranked at, six? I think he should be ahead of Tony (Ferguson) in the rankings. But for him to come out and say he wants a title shot next, a rematch versus Poirier, and his coach, they are (expletive) idiots. He’s been treated special over and over and over, and he didn’t capitalize on this opportunity. That event was for him. That event was for him to win, and he wants to be Mr. Humble now, but you know he would be an (expletive) if he won that fight.

So I don’t feel bad for him. I’m happy for Poirier. I’m happy Poirier went out there and did his job and finished him. I love seeing a loudmouth get knocked out. There is nothing that makes me happier. Seeing a piece of (expletive) get put down, that was great. I loved it.”
