At UFC 264, Conor McGregor finally faced off against Dustin Poirier in the main event of the show. With expectations off the roof, fans simply could not tell who was going to become the winner of the fight. Conor McGregor would go on to fracture his ankle at the end of the first round and this resulted in Dustin Poirier winning the fight via a TKO.
Dustin Poirier spoke during the post-fight press conference, where he accused Conor McGregor of cheating during the fight.
“That’s why I let him up at the end of the round. I let him up because he had three fingers in my glove. It’s a good grip on the cuff of the tape. Pulling me down into upkicks. He’s pulling me and kicking up at the same time. You know, I’m not surprised that he does stuff like that. I was telling Herb that ‘I can’t get out of it.’ When I told Herb, maybe Conor pulled his fingers out.”
