UFC champion Conor McGregor reacted to Justin Gaethje knocking out Dustin Poirier at UFC 291. The thrilling event at Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 29, saw a rematch between Poirier and Gaethje. The fight saw Justin emerging victorious with a knockout, adding thrill to the already-action packed fight.
After Justin’s win against Poirier, the score between the two fighters read 1-1. The former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor reacted to the fight and challenged the American. McGregor took to Twitter to express his thoughts and said, “Justin, I’ll slap you around.”
Speaking of the bout, the 34-year-old fighter registered a second-round knockout win over Dustin. Gaethje cloaked his kick with a punch at Poirier’s face as soon as he saw the opportunity when his opponent had his guards down. With this win, he claimed the victory and became the new BMF title holder.
Notably, The Notorious has been missing out on action ever since he suffered a leg injury during his fight with Poirier two years ago. The Irishman has been a part of The Ultimate Fighter, where his team finally managed to secure a win against his rival coach after seven consecutive defeats. However, his future remains uncertain as of now, but fans are eagerly waiting for him to be back in action.
