  • Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 2021: UFC 257 live updates

McGregor, whose previous four losses all came by submission, stayed on the canvas for several moments afterwards, gathering himself after his second loss in his three MMA fights since 2016.

"Hey, Conor! Hey, Conor!" he said in a video he tweeted. He's a pro. Nothing but respect.

Others have wondered whether McGregor would be open to a re-match with Poirier, an idea bolstered by McGregor's own pledge to fight again in 2021 and his playful suggestion to his opponent that they should go up against each other again soon.

Though Poirier had initially looked nervous during the fight, it was the American who got the first takedown of the bout in the first round.

Floyd Mayweather has hit out at Conor McGregor and said the Notorious 'isn't on his level, ' following the UFC star's loss on Saturday night.

McGregor began the second round with a stinging left hand that rattled Poirier. His shots didn't have as much snap due to not being able to put all of his weight into his punches. He was absorbing those immobilizing calf kicks, and though he did land some straight left hands, he never connected in a way that slowed Poirier. Poirier continued the assault and dropped McGregor with a right hook. "I'm here to win".

In his first fight in a year, McGregor (22-5) had a strong first round before he was stopped by punches for the first time in his mixed martial arts career. He gave Poirier all the credit for his performance.

After the Irishman's defeat, Mayweather shared an Instagram post by YouTube channel RingIQ TV which asked why he is criticised for having the same character and temperament as McGregor.

"It's hard to overcome inactivity, and that's just it", McGregor said in his post-fight interview.

"His leg kicks were good, my leg was dead and I wasn't as comfortable as I needed to be". But Dustin's some fighter. "I'm proud of my work". I already proved years ago that I was the best - period. We'll get to go again, and that's it.

Mayweather and McGregor fought in 2017.

The 32-year-old McGregor had been an overwhelming favourite to register a winning return after a year away from the octagon.

"I'll regroup", said McGregor.

"I got $10,000 for you, cash! So I'll take my licks". "It's a tough one to swallow". Still, UFC president Dana White is trying to persuade him into one more fight. Michael Chandler, the former Bellator lightweight champion, made his UFC debut against Dan Hooker and promptly knocked him out in the first round.
