Very pleased was Dustin Poirier after winning his third fight against Conor McGregor, also the main fight of the UFC 264 event. All this despite the fact that the end of the fight actually came because of an injury, not because of some direct blow from him.
The reason for this is his opinion that there were no unfortunate circumstances here after all, but that the reason for Conor's injury lies in what he did himself during the fight. He actually discovered this immediately in an interview after the fight, which Joe Rogan did with him.
It was Rogan who mentioned that it looked like Conor had made a wrong leg movement when he missed the crochet at the very end of the round. Dustin disagreed. "There was a fracture when I blocked his kick at the start of the fight.
He didn't injure his leg when he tried that shot at the end. When I pointed at him, in the early moments of the fight, it was because I felt like I blocked his shot well," Dustin said, while Conor not far from him, sitting on the floor of the Octagon, protested loudly.
And indeed, if you look at the fight again you will see the scene after about half a minute. Dustin blocked the shot, then pointed to Conor and said something. The Irishman thus actually continued with the trash talk that marked this week.
However, unlike in 2014, when he managed to get Dustin in the head, which resulted in him entering the fight mentally shaken at the start, this time there was no such effect.
Poirier remained focused and actually became even more motivated.
Conor has repeatedly said he intends to kill him, and that is something that is not easy to remain indifferent to. "I don't have a problem with trash talk, but murder is something you don't have to speak. After that, there's no going back.
He said he was going to kill me, but such things are not something you need to speak." "I hope he gets home to his wonderful family for sure. ", he replied in the opposite way. He turned briefly to the beginning of the fight.
The Irishman opened up better again, but by firing a few of his strong weapons he still failed to reverse the direction of the fight more seriously. "He hit me with a good kick like in the last fight. A kick I didn't see.
He shook me, but my legs were still there. After that, there was a floor. He put his fingers in my gloves and pulled me down to hit me with kicks." I tried to point this out to Herb. This guy is actually dirty trash, "yet he ended up with not-so-nice words for his opponent, still addressing the audience who roared throughout the interview: "And everyone who resents there is the message. You can kiss my a**!"
