Dustin Poirier Tells Conor McGregor 'Shut Your B---h A-- Up' After UFC 264 Injury TKOJuly 11, 2021
The trilogy fight between lightweight mixed martial artists Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor to cap UFC 264 on Saturday ended after McGregor suffered an apparent lower leg injury, leading to Poirier's first-round TKO (doctor's stoppage) victory.
