Tonight, Dustin Poirier exacted revenge on Conor McGregor, by knocking him out in the second round at UFC 257. Doing so, he also became the first man to TKO him inside the octagon.
One man who was particularly interested in the bout, was UFC Lightweight Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib recently announced his retirement, but told Dana White that based on the UFC 257 performances, he could be convinced to return for one more.
After Poirier defeated McGregor, Khabib took to social media to give his thoughts on the result and why the events unfolded as they did.
This is what happened, when you change your team, leave the sparring partners who made you a champion and sparring with little kids, far away from reality.— khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) January 24, 2021
