Irishman Conor McGregor kept his word and destroyed Dustin Poirier in the first round of their fight at UFC 178: Johnson vs Cariaso in Las Vegas, Nevada. The result didn’t come without any hate from fans, of course. McGregor landed a flush left punch that put Poirier down and the follow up shots were academic.
Poirier went face down as McGregor landed more punches, which many fans felt were to the back of the head, but still an outstanding showing for the hot prospect.
