Conor McGregor’s Leg Injury
Conor McGregor’s recovery from his leg break is the subject of much speculation. It is not clear what exactly caused it, but the Irishman reportedly visited a doctor in California before the UFC fight. Kavanagh’s theory is that the two events may be linked. But it remains unclear whether a fight in California actually caused the injury. Regardless, Kavanagh says the injury is related to UFC 264, and he pinpointed the exact moment that McGregor’s leg took the most damage in the match. McGregor missed a punch against Poirier’s elbow, and stepped back after missing the punch.
Conor McGregor’s recovery from leg break
A recent update on Conor McGregor’s leg break has been positive. The mixed martial artist is planning to resume full sparring by April, and he’s confident that he’ll be able to make a quick return to the octagon after that. However, the fighter has stressed that he must be patient and that it will take time for his leg to heal and be fully functional.
Although doctors initially believed that McGregor would need at least four months to fully recover, the UFC lightweight champion is already ahead of schedule. He’s already back in the gym, training on his other leg and upper body. The surgery was successful, and McGregor has been training for his return to full combat training. John Kavanagh, McGregor’s trainer, has been encouraging his patient’s progress with the recovery process.
Dustin Poirier’s injury
The UFC on Fox event at UFC 264 featured a shocking injury to Conor McGregor. The featherweight champion broke his left tibia and fibula in the first round. This caused the fight to be stopped in between rounds while doctors examined the injury. Many wondered if Poirier had intentionally injured McGregor or if he was simply clinching.
McGregor’s injury was an unfortunate asterisk to a very solid performance, and his loss to Poirier only made him more avenged. Poirier’s win was a solid one for Poirier, who is now 22-6-0 in the UFC. Poirier is 2-1 against McGregor, who he has fought twice.
Oliveira’s new mindset
After the horrific leg break that Conor McGregor suffered against Dustin Poirier during UFC 264, lightweight champion Charles Oliveira has come to McGregor’s aid. He is hopeful that the injured UFC star will recover quickly and can fight again. Despite McGregor’s post-fight antics, Oliveira is sympathetic to his former rival. Oliveira believes McGregor’s injury is tragic for the sport.
Oliveira’s recent weight loss has thrown his title reign to a halt. He will have to add more title defenses to stay relevant. However, his ability to win in these circumstances is a huge factor in his current success. He has a proven track record of placing himself in precarious situations and taking the damage himself.
Dustin Poirier’s fight with Conor McGregor
A potential third fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier is being considered, but one thing’s for sure: neither man will be satisfied with the results. Poirier is a lightweight and has a 2-1 record against McGregor. McGregor is the current two-weight world champion. A third fight between the two would depend on whether McGregor has recovered from his broken leg and is ready to fight again.
Although Dustin Poirier is 2-0 against McGregor, he still has some work to do. He recently posted video of himself in the hospital, taking a shot at his opponent. “I had a hell of a first round. Unfortunately, I didn’t win,” he said in the video.
