    The much-anticipated faceoff of the UFC 257 tournament was held at Fight Island on Yas in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    American professional mixed martial artist Dustin Poirier has defeated the Irish UFC legend "Notorious" Conor McGregor. The lightweight bout wrapped up in Poirier's favour after a technical knockout in the second round.

    Speaking after his defeat, the Irishman said that he has no intention of hanging up his gloves for a fourth time, assuring reporters that he would work on his mistakes and get back into the octagon this year.

    McGregor attributed the setback to ring rust, adding that low kicks were the biggest problem for him in his bout with Poirier.

    The 32-year-old fighter's clash with Poirier comes roughly a year after his fight with Donald Cerrone, which he won by a TKO.

    In summer 2020, McGregor said he would be retiring from fighting, but agreed to a matchup with Poirier nevertheless.
