After the game, Khabib Nurmagomedov – who has been Conor McGregor’s rival in the past reacted. Khabib feels too many changes in the team and leaving people who made the latter the champions led to his downfall.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “This is what happened, when you change your team, leave the sparring partners who made you a champion and sparring with little kids, far away from reality.”

Also what this loss does is – it rules out the chance of a big-money rematch between Khabib and McGregor in the future.

After the shock loss, McGregor said: “I have to dust it off and come back.”

Initially, Dustin soaked up the pressure of the punches from the fan favourite, but then once he settled, he started to get in his own and dominate proceedings.

This was a rematch between second-ranked lightweight and former interim champion Dustin Poirier and former featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor – UFC 257. Conor McGregor – 22-4 – had claimed that he’s hungry as ever and was looking for more blood and vigour in the lead-up to fighting Poirier – 26-1-6 – on Sunday.
