Conor McGregor's Last Fight Details

In his most recent showdown, Conor McGregor locked horns with Dustin Poirier in a trilogy bout at UFC 264 on July 10, 2021. At the beginning of the inaugural round of the bout, McGregor came out with two spinning body kicks bundled with a calf kick, somewhat imitating Poirier from UFC 257. This intimidating barrage of kicks continued showering on Dustin Poirier and ended with a big left hand.

Dustin Poirier then countered with a similar leg kick, followed by a left hand to distance McGregor. After a failed attempt at a guillotine choke on Poirier, McGregor was countered by a series of stiff punches accompanied by big elbows by Poirier. A few seconds in, Conor attempted a left hand, and as soon as he stepped back on his left leg, it snapped. He instantly fell down on his back, screaming in pain due to the gruesome injury.

Dustin Poirier punched him regardless, taking advantage of the situation. Ultimately, he was stopped by a loud horn, followed by the ringside doctor barging in, concluding the fight and Dustin Poirier getting declared as the winner via first-round TKO due to the doctor's stoppage.
