    American Mixed Martial Art (MMA) fighter Dustin Poirier ended up defeating former double-champion Connor McGregor in the ongoing Ultimate Fighting Championship. After McGregor twisted his leg and stumbled, he could not continue.

    The ongoing Ultimate Fighting Championship took an interesting turn on Sunday after American MMA fighter Dustin Poirier was awarded victory in his match against Connor McGregor. 

    ​Both fighters were 32 years old, and both were record-breaking MMA fighters, each with a massive fan-base. 

    As the results of this match were declared, followers of the tournament took to Twitter to share their opinions on the situation.

    While some said McGregor should consider retirement, the others humorously expressed concerns as to whether Poirier would be able to return home safely after snatching victory from the beastly Irishman.

    ​Along with Poierier himself, UFC fans have also sent prayers for McGregor's quick recovery.
