The rematch was built on mutual respect, it carried it’s way through fight week and it was on full display after the bout. Dustin Poirier & Conor McGregor handled themselves like true pros. You don’t always see that, but tonight you love to see it.
McGregor said he heard Thiago Alves in Dustin Poirier’s corner saying “that was a good one” about one of the second-round calf kicks. McGregor: “In my head, I was like, you bastard — that was a good one.”
Dustin Poirier reacts to his knockout win over Conor McGregor and what it means for his title hopes in the lightweight division.
“Once I got under those lights, I just came to life. I felt great. I felt in the moment.”
