As is customary with Conor McGregor, he is taking the time to break down a fight shortly after it expires.
After losing to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, Conor has kept with tradition, taking to Instagram to break down what happened in defeat.
“Some highlights from my last fight! What a trilogy I now have on my hands,” he wrote on Instagram. “Exciting! With a handle on the leg kicks I will get back to having fun in there. I was in second gear cruising this fight. Best condition I’ve ever been in.
“After the wrestling and clinch exchanges my shots still held their pop,” he continued. “First time for me with this so I am very encouraged to keep going. It was the first time I did not use/nor need the stool between rounds also. I did need the stool after though that’s for sure.”
“A little single disciplined in my approach and stance with mostly boxing,” McGregor said. “It’s what I get for picking this bout and opponent as a precursor to a boxing match against Pacman. I deserved to get the legs kicked off me going in with this thinking.
“This is not the game to play around with,” he continued. “Besides this, my shots where sharp and I was in full control. Albeit the leg attacks where building up on me throughout the course. 18 in total thrown at me, with the final one buckling my leg fully, that was that. The peroneal nerve compromised. Fascinating! First time to experience it.”
“Then a tremendous finishing flurry by my opponent. Hats off! A well fought fight by The Diamond. 1 a piece now with a Trilogy bout for all the marbles! Wow! Exciting! Not a trilogy I was expecting, nor the tactical affair I was anticipating, but I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t meant to be. This is exactly how this was always meant to be! Buzzing!!”
