Poirier Retaliates and Beats Mcgregor by Knockout in the Second Round

UFC The Diamond takes the revenge of 2014 against a rival who noticed the inactivity

Dustin Poirier connects a great hand and finishes with Conor McGregor.

(Advanced) Dustin Poirier has given the bell in the main fight of UFC 257 and has defeated Conor McGregor by knockout. ‘The Diamond’ thus takes revenge for the defeat suffered at the hands of the Irish in 2014.

‘The Notorious’, too far from the Octagon of late beyond his military walk in front of Donald Cerrone in January 2020, paid for his inactivity despite the fact that at times it seemed that he had the fight under control.

Poirier managed to bring down the Irishman at the first exchange but then he dominated the first round connecting a pair of good hands.

Already in the second, and with McGregor dominating the stage, the American landed a great blow that destabilized his rival, who ended up kissing the canvas after a devastating right hand from ‘The Diamond’ midway through the second round.
