Dustin Poirier was able to deliver a knockout to McGregor and win the fight which quickly put an end to his return to the octagon. This was one entertaining match again for their lightweight fight at UFC 257 that took place in the United Arab Emirates. This was McGregor’s first fight of the year and this rematch was years in the making after McGregor previously won back in 2014 within a matter of 106 seconds against Poirier. After that, it didn’t take long for McGregor to become the featherweight champion only 15 months after. Dustin went on to win several fights, only having one loss in the next 11 after that. Fans had been waiting a while to see McGregor come back to the octagon and he is making no excuses for how the fight went down.
