Conor McGregor thinks Poirier’s win shouldn’t be recorded.

Conor McGregor is speaking out after his lost to Dustin Poirier Saturday night. The popular fight from UFC lost his bout to Poirer after he stepped back to ground himself, his ankle buckled underneath his own weight and snapped in two. McGregor eventually fell to the floor and survived a barrage from Poirier before the round ended and the fight was called due to a doctor’s stoppage. It was a horrible way for the evening to end, and now, McGregor is going to have to go through a long recovery.
Hours after his fight, McGregor received surgery on his leg as a rod was placed in his tibia and fibula. In a video posted to Twitter, McGregor revealed that the surgery was successful and that he will be on crutches for about six weeks. From there, he will be able to walk normally again, all while doing rehab.McGregor took to social media to tell Dustin Poirier his loss  shouldn’t count and that Dustin should be ashamed of his win because it is “illegitimate.”

“It was not to be. You know, Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want, but you’ve done nothing in there. That second round would have shown all,” McGregor claimed.

Dana White has expressed interest in yet another Poirier fight as Poirer has been silent about the whole ordeal since Saturday night.
