Shock wave in Abu Dhabi! Dustin Poirier caused the surprise by winning by K.-O. technical ahead of Conor McGregor in Round 2 of UFC 257 on Sunday night.
It was a salvo of blows to the head that got the better of the so-called “The Notorious”. The latter ran aground on the ground before the referee had to order a cessation of hostilities.
Poirier avenges his defeat at the hands of the Irishman in 2014.
McGregor was returning to the Octagon for the first time since Jan. 18, 2020, when he won against Donald Cerrone.
The former featherweight and lightweight champion will likely have to come to terms with the idea that he won’t get his rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
