• “I knew something may happen in advance” – Conor McGregor On His Leg Injury At UFC 264

In the main event of UFC 264, Conor McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier via TKO (Doctor Stoppage) after he broke his leg during the final minute of the 1st round.

McGregor recently noted on Twitter that he wasn’t surprised by his leg injury, because he knew something like this would happen.

Here’s what he wrote:

“In my last camp [I had] a severely damaged left leg, many of my sessions consisted of starting in open guard bottom. And staying there. Full rounds remaining on bottom. I was beating people up until they backed away from me. It then translated to the fight. True story.

Same leg, same spot, I attribute it to why I wasn’t in as much shock as Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva were. I knew something may happen in advance.

Chris was upset with my quote (about having a different response to breaking his leg). Felt I was aiming at him. I was not. If any [consolation] to my reaction, it was because [I had] a heads up it may snap.”

McGregor then went on about how he was hurting Dustin with his elbow strikes in their trilogy fight, and how Poirier doesn’t want a 4th fight with him:

“Really nasty elbows and upkicks for sure. That or maybe a really annoying blue bottle was around him after the fight.

Make no mistake they are not looking forward to what is coming. I will be back and it will be settled. Once and for all.”
