And it all blew up in his face when the Irishman was stunned on Fight Island by Dustin Poirier. After a lengthy hiatus, McGregor was defeated by a second-round TKO. The pair was involved in some tense grappling in the first round after Poirier took McGregor to the canvas and used up some of the 32-yearolds gas. The Irishman responded with some punishing shoulder strikes and a solid flurry of knees. But it wasnt enough as Poirier unleashed in the second round with a serious combination before sending McGeregor to the canvas. From there it was easy work for the American, who pounded his opponent relentlessly before referee Herb Dean called the bout off. Thats the last time youre going to doubt my husband, I swear to God, Poiriers wife Jolie said. It was a result which stunned the UFC world. Many weighed in on what the fight meant for McGregors future. Many were quick to praise Poirier tactics of sapping McGregors energy. Others were critical of McGregors conditioning. Some consider the talk of a rematch between McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov dead in the water. Its hard to overcome long periods of inactivity, McGregor said. The leg kicks were good, the leg was dead. I just wasnt as comfortable as I wanted to be. Its the inactivity and thats it. Dustin is some fighter. I have to dust it off and come back and thats what Ill do. I need activity. You dont get away with being inactive in this business and thats it. Ill take my licks. Im gutted man, I put a lot of work in. Dustin Poirier lands a right on Conor McGregor.
