UFC 264 in Tweets: Pros react to Dustin Poirier’s win, Conor McGregor’s broken leg in trilogy – MMA Root

Dustin Poirier appeared to be on his way to a first round TKO victory in his UFC 264 trilogy with Conor McGregor. Then, in the final seconds of the first round, something crazy happened.

As a result of the exchange of punches, McGregor was left with something like a broken ankle, and the doctor at the cage canceled the fight, denying the opponents a more final closure after three fights.

Poirier officially won the trilogy 2: 1. That didn’t stop McGregor from barking as he sat across from the octagon, his injured limb wrapped in the air. Time will tell if the ending will lead to a different departure.

Here’s how the fighters reacted to the main card of UFC 264.
