UFC: Again, Conor McGregor suffers freak leg injury in loss to Dustin Poirier
The UFC 264 main event fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier concluded in strange, shocking style.
McGregor suffered what appeared to be a freak broken leg after rolling over his ankle in the dying seconds of the opening round.
It was a round McGregor conclusively lost, after being outstruck on the feet and wrestled to the ground after an unsuccessful submission attempt.
An injury to Conor McGregor’s leg forced a Doctor’s Stoppage in the #UFC264 main event.
“This is not over,” said McGregor, in a post fight interview with Joe Rogan. ‘If I have to take this outside with him, it’s on outside. I don’t give a bollocks.”
Dana White stated that McGregor would be going into surgery tomorrow on Sunday to deal with the leg injury.
He said that a title fight with current UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira was most likely next for Poirier, but believes that a fourth fight between McGregor and Poirier will happen at some point in the future, when McGregor has recovered from the surgery
