Comments are crazy, saying he’s lost motivation or comparing him to Ronda Rousey. He came in great shape, lost to the better man on the night and answered for it to the media. Losing to a guy as good as Dustin doesn’t mean your career is finished by a long shot

Please don't celebrate a man's defeat give him the respect he deserves for what he has done for martial arts thank You Conor

Honestly felt bad for Mcgregor seeing him like that, he looked very vulnerable tonight. Hope this isn’t the last of him.

Both guys kept it extremely classy before and afterwards.

To be honest, people have been way too conditioned with the whole "win" or "lose" thing. From a young age we're made to believe a loss is a complete failure, undeserving of the same respect. It's silly. Only one gets their hand raised at the end of a bout, but they're both world class fighters competing at the highest level. It's never a loss if you went in there and gave it all you had. One guy just comes out on top on the night. The other could win on a different night. All competitors have my respect.
Michael Queen
Michael Queen:
It’s even a hard pill for us to swallow for seeing him lose the way he did but nobody will ever forget how great he was and everything he has done for the sport

The fighters absolutely carried themselves like professionals in all aspects of this card. In winning and defeat to pre fight interviews and post fight interviews hats off to them.

Love Connors attitude. Still a champion and congrats to Diamond for a great victory.

Nobody should feel like a loser. It’s incredibly brave to fight at this level. God bless everyone.

All respect to Conor. This is unforgiving game but he always puts his neck on the line to achieve greatness. This time he fell a little bit short. Hope to see him soon. Congrats to Dustin
Don Johnson

The calf kick game was genius, cheers to Dustin and his coaching staff 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Daniel Bowe Deserteagle
Daniel Bowe Deserteagle:
Great frame of mind for you Connor to be in after the fight after your loss I still respect you you'll one of the greatest fighters of all time it will never be the same without you
Robby Robinson
Robby Robinson:
No doubt calf kick got him. But always remember it was shots to the head that stopped him. Kicks might slow your movement, but it does not hurt your ability to take shots to the head. He could not handle Porier's hands

Dustin really destroyed Conor's calf. Great gameplan executed well.

Win or lose I’m happy that he’s still a huge part of the game. He’s always exciting.

This was definitely one of the worst night of Dana's life he pretty much thought dustin was a sacrificial goat but the goat kicked the calf
Desert spectre
Desert spectre:
Good show of Class not a huge fan but definitely in my list of favorites now. We need this kind of Sportsmanship in the Business. Hats off to both fighters!
Will Slate
Will Slate:
Love Conor and Love Dustin! One amazing thing is that Conor is putting himself on the chopping block when he doesn’t need to and helping everyone he fights become millionaires. That’s mad OG respect!
lil Monk
lil Monk:
If you go back and watch Sean O'Malleys first fight you will see him take his first l because of a leg kick. Same thing happened to conor. He was doing good just didn't deal with the leg kicks early on.
KhanalSush
KhanalSush:
I don't wanna see anyone clowning McGregor. He was respectful before and after the fight. I was rooting for Dustin the whole time and I am happy to see him win but people are being disrespectful to these Warriors.
Rocktown501
Rocktown501:
McGregor vs Poirier 3 just might be EPIC if Conor manages to get his groove back, especially now that he knows how much improvement Dustin has made over the last 6 years. Both fighters are still VERY talented and extremely dangerous, but tremendous respect for Poirier for becoming the first to KO ole Mystic Mac.
Declan Colgan
Declan Colgan:
He will be back, everyone over-looking him as a competitor. Conor McGregor will be back and better than ever !!! 🇮🇪👑

Who is here after the Trilogy? Well, that changed fast.

Dustin did very well but you have to be a casual if you say that conors time is over and he has to retire. The first round was perfect from mcgregor, he had a good chance knocking dustin out if he would have checked the kicks earlier.
People are talking about the eddie alvarez fight and that this mcgregor was the best mcgregor ever, but do you guys forget that this mcgregor lost to nate diaz a couple of months before that alvarez fight? My point is that a loss means nothing for mcgregor. He lost to diaz and still became double champ in the same year
Chris Steinke
Chris Steinke:
I mean although it finished in the 2nd round i thought it was a really good fight from both of them.
Dustin got him down,
Conor got back up and turned him around,
Good position reversal from both of them,
Good exachanges off the cage,
Conor got Dustin hurt a couple time,
Dustin kicks were amazing.
Dustin because of a better gameplan got the win.

Thats alot of action for 7 minutes.
They will go again and i cant wait.

A very humble Connor, from the very start. He will return.

The Conor era will forever be one of the greatest times in MMA history. I hope even his haters can acknowledge that in the years to come, because it is well and truly over. Thanks for the memories.

Well said! You really don't get away by being inactive in this business. Dana, give him opportunities, this man clearly wanted it ever since his Cerrone fight.

Jack Flowers
Jack Flowers:
Let's speak facts guys... In this sport you cannot always win. Khabib retired at the right time, because someday someone would have whooped his ass. It's inevitable. So, I salute the winner and the loser of this match.. They gave us great emotions. Keep up the good work Conor
Carnage
Carnage:
People who are celebrating this man's downfall and defeat are gonna eat their words when he comes back better. Kicking a man when he's down smh can't believe the hate. Every man who makes this walk deserves respect because how many of us would say we would
Root00
Root00:
I'm glad he points out his inactivity.

You can't fight once every two years & expect to fight the top 3 you just can't.

Those guys are top 3 for a reason
*There in the gym day n night*
*This isn't a game*

If Conner gets his drive back, we'll see I guess.
He seems well humbled now.

I just hope he gets his form back, because he looked terrible this fight.

*Ring Rust is real*

Not the Connor we saw a few years back.
N8tive

Real sportsmanship from both of these warriors.
Syed Moosa Gilani
Syed Moosa Gilani:
Connor fought well but I believe Dustin was just not the same fighter as he was in their first fight. The thing that really impressed me this time, is Connor's great attitude. Both of them are classy and tough dudes. They've shown great respect to each other which is a good trend starting to develop in the UFC. After all, fighters are humans too and have their weak points and they do it for a living. We should always be humble. That's a lesson to learn
Love fr. Pakistan for both fighters and all UFC fans!

I was surprised so little people thought Poirer could hurt McGregor early. Conor hasn't fought someone with Dustin's power & he leaves himself open to being hit.

Hope to see him fight again soon. We will not have another mcgregor again. Dustin, give this guy a shot. He deserves to be a chamo
James Knight
James Knight:
I like this down to earth Mcgreggor a lot more personally. I hope he doesn’t retire on this performance. He was sluggish and slow, which will be hard to get back. You see it with racing drivers after an accident and they’re out for a while. I hope he gets back to some of his best though. It’s a good sport with him in it.

Rob Stevens
Rob Stevens:
Mcgregor took that loss like a champ...must've really hurt to lose like that.He's been beat before but never like that.I hope he comes back stronger and has more fights to prove that he was just ring rusty...I must say though he didn't look like the same guy in there.

Honestly I thought Dustin was losing and Conor seemed very confident but I guess sometimes things go the other way in that type of sport, love the new Conor btw I like him more humbled down.

This is always gonna be the case with this division, top ranked guys like Conor, Dustin, Tony, Justin etc can win and lose against each other all day but the guy sat at the top of the division Khabib will remain unchallenged, he's just levels above all of them.

Dustin gameplan was executed perfectly. Hope to see Mcgregor fight again soon, took the loss well this time.

He said he is here to create highlights...well this knock out should be played over and over...
They actually performed at the highest level of MMA huge respect for both.

Just let Connor keep a long career. No matter how well he started. He’s a fighter and he wants to keep going so let him.
Kagemusha08
Kagemusha08:
I think the Floyd fight and the subsiquent year long binge was the absolute worst thing for Conor's career, despite making his filthy rich. His MMA striking skills regressed signifigantly. His distance management and timing a signifigantly worse. He did nothing but throw 1-2s all night and do those shoulder strikes, which weren't worth the amount of gas it takes to explode up from the clinch.

This dude got me interested in MMA 7 years ago with Aldo fight I’ll always be a loyal Mcgregor fan

People saying he’s a class act here - this is normal behaviour for almost everyone lol he’s just not a tool like usual.

Wow the contrast between here and 2 days ago…. 😧😳

Something about Conor's striking style changed ever since he went and boxed Mayweather. I prefer the pre-Mayweather fight style for Conor.

Big props to ma man! If you ain't a fan still, you never truly were. Legend of the sport always. Will be back!

I feel had for Conor because he looked great and was dominating the fight and landing good shots. Stayed in the pocket too long and got rocked and its over.
Amir Quraishi
Amir Quraishi:
I think after Chandler's ko he came out to prove a point nd underestimated Dustin's game, didn't use his kicks properly nd here we are..
Kudos to Dustin for executing his game plan💎

The Fat Turtle
The Fat Turtle:
Respect to Conor, didn't make excuses he just needs to be more active if he wants to stay at the top. He wasted a lot of his athletic prime, but he also made enough money to be legit rich, so he's not hurting if he stops now.
Alex __226
Alex __226:
Conor thought he'd walk in & KO Poirer. Wasn't expecting the takedown. Wasn't even attempting to block the kicks. Disappointing because his endurance actually looked improved.
Royce Kenneth Minor De Vera
Royce Kenneth Minor De Vera:
Ironically,Dustin did what Conor did in his second fight with Nate
Conor took a Boxing based approach in this fight and Dustin took advantage of it. In my opinion the perfect style that Conor used is the style when he fought Alvarez, not too flashy and not so one dimensionsal ! In this fight Conor is so one dimensional because he came in this fight like a boxer with a boxing stance like stance, wide and heavy in the front foot and Dustin saw that and adjusted
J G
J G:
Looks as though Conor was too focussed on managing his energy in round 1.
If he had done his standard sprint style in round 1 he might have had more success.
Fighters cannot be stuck between styles because this is what happens.

Rahul Kumar
Rahul Kumar:
Hey I know you guys don't like McGregor but his confidence changed my life in 2016 you probably hate him but to be honest I'm gonna miss him
Patrick Ryce
Patrick Ryce:
Mcgregors style relies on youth, relies on athleticism, reaction time etc. Its the type of style that doesnt age well, like Roy Jones Jr in boxing, he started to age and went downhill dramatically. Conor was overreaching and wasn't counter punching.

Great attitude from both fighters .
Dana's heart was broken thinking this would set up Conor to fight again and again . Now he has to figure out how to market Dustin instead of makin money off Conor

Not a connor fan but nice to see he finally has class and respect for others.
