Conor McGregor Suffers Gruesome Ankle Injury During UFC 264 Fight Against Dustin Poirier

It was a quick fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier that had a nasty ending.

The two mixed martial artist took to the octagon during the UFC 264 main event on Saturday night (July 10) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Towards the end of the first round, Dustin hit Conor with combination. When Conor went to plant his left foot, his leg buckled, sending him to the mat in severe pain.

While Conor was down, Dustin followed up with several punches as the time ran out.

With Conor clearly in pain, the referee called the match. The official result was Dustin winning by TKO (doctor’s stoppage) at five minutes of the first round.

Conor was not happy with the way the match ended.

Conor yelled “This is not over!” as he was then taken out of the arena by stretcher and brought to the hospital.

This was the third time Conor and Dustin faced off in the ring.

Back in January at UFC 257, Dustin defeated Conor in a second round TKO. Back in 2014 at UFC 178, Conor knocked out Dustin in less than two minutes.
