Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 full fight video highlights from UFC 257

Poirier takes revenge against McGregor

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier squared off in the main event of UFC 257 live on pay-per-view from Etihad Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi aka “Fight Island” on January 23 in the US and January 24 in Australia. The contest featured former featherweight and lightweight champion up against former interim 155-pound titleholder in the rematch.


Their first fight in September 2014 ended in favor of McGregor, who stopped Poirier in the first round with punches. Their second, scheduled for five rounds, matchup also ended prior to the final horn.

This time the tables turned. Poirier came out on top, taking the revenge by knockout in the second round also with punches.

Half way through Round 2 “Diamond” started to unload a barrage of strikes that ultimately dropped McGregor to the canvas. He continued pounding, forcing referee Herb Dean to step in, which ended the fight at the official time of 2 minutes and 32 seconds into the second round.

Conor McGregor dropped to 22-5. In his previous outing in January 2020 he defeated Donald Cerrone via first-round TKO, which followed the defeat via fourth-round submission also against Nurmagomedov.
