Irish fighter Conor McGregor suffered a leg injury during his defeat to American Dustin Poirier in the retaliatory match that brought them together Sunday in Abu Dhabi at the UFC 257 mixed martial arts tournament
McGregor came to the press conference after the confrontation, leaning on a crutch, limping and leaning with difficulty on his right leg.
The account of the fighting organization “UFC” on “Instagram” also published a video clip of a meeting between the American fighters, Barrier and Irish McGregor after their face-to-face fight.
“I broke my leg completely! Great job, congratulations,” said McGregor.
Poirier destroyed the Irishman’s leg with several low kicks.
Poirier managed to end the fight in the second round with a technical knockout, after he directed a series of punches to the face of MacGregor, who could not avoid it, to fall to the ground, and then the referee stopped the fight, announcing the victory of the American.
Poirier avenged his loss to McGregor in the September 2014 match against “UFC 178” for mixed martial arts.
This is the 27th victory for Poirier during his professional career so far, compared to 6 defeats, while McGregor suffered the fifth defeat in 27 matches.
