In Las Vegas, a duel took place between mixed style fighters (MMA) Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. The correspondent of “Lenta.ru” informs about it.
The fight took place as part of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) tournament. The fight lasted the entire round due to the injury that the Irishman received at the very end of the five-minute period. McGregor stumbled after a missed blow from Porier and injured his leg. During the break, the doctor decided that the Irishman would not be able to continue the fight and stopped him.
The fight was the third between the fighters. McGregor and Poirier first faced off in the UFC Octagon in 2014. Then the Irishman managed to defeat his opponent ahead of schedule in the first round. In January 2021, the American took revenge, and McGregor suffered his first knockout defeat in his career.
McGregor is a former UFC champion in two weight divisions. Poirier held the belt of the interim champion of the organization and failed to combine the titles in a duel with the then UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
