    Without the leg kicks McGregor gets out that last flurry.

    Excellent from Poirier.

    Both are so much better to watch than Khabib. Can respect Khabib’s talent, but the way Poirier done that is unreal.

    Just a bet to make it more interesting. Lost 2:50 on the first round. Can’t complain.

    McGregor just doesn't have the heart for the UFC any more. It's just an advert for his whiskey to him.

    Can't blame him tbh. He'll be fighting * like Jake Paul in a year or two and earning 100x for one fight what every other MMA fighter earns in a lifetime.

    We’ll see how long it lasts...

    He’ll get an easy fight next and then we’ll hear how he’s back and Khabib should stop running from him etc.

    I’d love the Conor we saw for this fight to fight 2 or even 3 more times this year.

    Really go for it for one more run. * all that panto *, it’s boring now. Much preferred the back and forth with Poirier to the fake hate pish.

    What’s next then?

    Poirier, Olivera, Gaethje and Chandler.

    I’d love to see Poirier v Gaethje 2.

    I’m desperate for Poirier to be the man to beat Khabib but I’ll take any one of those 4 tbh.

    If he fights again this year then it’ll be Diaz I think.

    I like him as a fighter but his fanboys are * unbearable.

    Even just now on social media looking at them they’re completely clueless about the sport.

    Gaethje Chandler would be unreal.

    Don’t think Khabib comes back unless it’s GSP.

    GSP is the last * I want to see in the UFC. So bored of hearing about that too :giggle1: that honestly doesn’t draw me in. Khabib fighting the winner of this mini “tournament” does. Even if he’s beaten Gaethje and Poirier, these guys seem to learn with every fight and could KO anyone, anytime.

    Be interesting to see where McGregor goes from here. I expect him to want an immediate rematch. He can forget Khabib now anyway.

    Don’t think Conor looked done or anything close to it, he’s just not as good as a lot of people think.

    He looked sharp and caught Dustin a couple of times but 155 is a different animal to 145.

    Poirier done him like a kipper.

    Nah I don't think he's done either there's plenty interesting fights out there for McGregor. He's just no gonnae win them all.
