This was the spectacular fight of the UFC
The Irishman received a brutal knockout in the second round and was showcased by the American.
Dominant start of a Poirier who was clear on the key to beating McGregor: tire the Irishman. He quickly sought out the takedown and tried to control the combat from the ground.
However, when the fight returned to the top, the Irishman began to deliver millimeter blows to the face of the American, and seemed to have the fight very controlled
That is how the second round also began. McGregor dominating upstairs and Poirier seemed to have no answer. But seven years waiting for revenge is a long time, and ‘The Diamond’ proved it.
Poirier waited for his opportunity, and in the middle of the second round he took advantage of a few moments of slump from ‘The Notorious’ to connect a definitive right hand. McGregor to the ground, and the referee stopped the fight.
