“I’m happy but I’m not surprised,” Poirier says. “I put in the work. Conor took this result very professionally. He’s a pro. We’re 1-1. Maybe we have to do it again. I’m just happy. I’m happy in the place I’m in. I’m happy with the person I see in the mirror.”
Poirier continues to attack McGregor’s leg from distance and the leg appears dead. Poirier is getting a lot more confident boxing from this distance. A now a massive left from Poirier snaps McGregor’s head back and he’s hurt! McGregor is hurt badly and Poirier is raining down blows. Poirier is pouring on the punishment, landing one shot after another … and it’s over! Referee Herb Dean has waved it off and Conor McGregor has been knocked out in the second round.
