Dustin Poirier truly believed he would be the one to stop the Conor McGregor hype-train.
Instead, he suffered his first knockout loss, falling to McGregor this past Saturday night in the first round at UFC 178.
“The Diamond” posted a pair of message on Twitter in the days following the event, showing just how “down in the dumps” he currently is.
Live by the sword Die by the sword I'm truly heart broken.

More recently, Poirier added another message:
This loss hurts more than words can explain.

Poirier (16-4) had his three-fight win streak snapped by McGregor. The two engaged in some intense face-offs before the bout, which lasted just under two minutes.
