The trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was marred by an unfortunate injury.
McGregor and Poirier were at the end of the first round of their fight at UFC 264 at T-Mobile Arenas in Las Vegas, Nev. on Saturday night. McGregor went forward for a 1-2 combination, and Poirier threw a counter punch. McGregor jumped back to avoid Poirier’s counter and mis-stepped.
Instead of landing on his left foot, he landed with his foot turned in, underneath him. His leg ended up breaking just above the left ankle. It was a clear compound fracture.
