Conor McGregor suffers shock KO loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 with career left in tatters and Khabib rematch a no go – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

CONOR MCGREGOR suffered a devastating defeat in his long-awaited return to the UFC’s lightweight division this morning, a loss which has all but ended his hopes of a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Notorious returned to the weight class he once ruled in the early hours of the morning for a rematch with Dustin Poirier, which headlined UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi.

But the UFC’s first simultaneous two-weight world champion was given a rude welcome back to the division by the former interim king, suffering a second-round TKO loss.

Prior to McGregor’s return to the shark tank that is the lightweight division, his head coach – John Kavanagh – revealed to SunSport he’s hoping his most famous student will have a prolonged run at 155lb.

He said: “Yeah, I think it’s the goldilocks weight, you know. Not too little, not too much. It’s the goldilocks weight.

“He seems to be designed for that weight class. So of course as a trainer as a fan, I would love him to be in there every second month for the year.”
