Himself without a victory in his last two consecutive Octagon walks, McGregor most recently fractured his left tibia and fibula back in July 2021 in a doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to former interim champion, Dustin Poirier.
Prior to that, in January of the same year, Conor McGregor dropped his first loss via knockout in professional mixed martial arts, dropping a second round KO to Poirier in Abu Dhabi, UAE – in his return to the lightweight limit to boot.
McGregor’s most recent win came in the form of a January 2020 stoppage over incoming UFC Hall of Fame inductee, Donald Cerrone, stopping the former lightweight championship challenger with a 40-second high-kick and ground strikes TKO triumph.
