Conor McGregor addresses his fans and well-wishers from the hospital after he was admitted due to an ankle injury at UFC 264. The Irish superstar once again takes a dig at his opponent Dustin Poirier.
Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier were matched up for an amazing trilogy at UFC 264 to settle their tied-up series. The Diamond won the bout via TKO due to injuries in the first round. McGregor happened to break his ankle bone and the fight was called off deeming the Notorious One unfit to pursue the fight. It was an uneventful end for the fighters and the main event given how electric the first round was.
“What’s up, fight fans,” McGregor began. “The Notorious here. Just out of the surgery room — everything went to plan. Everything went perfectly. I’m feeling tremendous. We’ve got six weeks on a crutch now and then we begin to build back. I want to thank all the fans all around the world for your messages of support. I hope you all enjoyed the show. I want to thank all the fans in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena — 21,800 fans in attendance,” McGregor said on his social media platforms about the fight.
Conor McGregor says “second round would’ve shown it all”
The Notorious One thanked everyone that came out to watch him fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The fighter also confirmed that his tibia is broken. “The place was absolutely electric. It was a hell of a first round. It would have been nice to get into that second round and then, you know, to see what’s what. But it is what it is, that’s the nature of the business. It was a clean break of the tibia and it was not to be.”
“Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want, but you’ve done nothing in there. That second round would have shown all. Onwards and upwards we go, team. We dust ourselves off, we build ourselves back and we come back better than ever. Let’s go, team,” ended McGregor.
