Conor McGregor Trained A Day After Leaving Arena On Crutches Following UFC 257 Defeat To Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor Trained A Day After Leaving Arena On Crutches Following UFC 257 Defeat To Dustin Poirier

They say there's no rest for the wicked and Conor McGregor showed he lives by that motto by training less than 24 hours after his UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier.

'The Notorious' required the assistance of a single crutch to hobble to his press conference and out of the Etihad Arena as a result of some brutal leg kicks from 'The Diamond'.

Although gutted after being knocked out for the first time in his MMA career, McGregor was classy in how he took the defeat, and just a day on, he displayed his elite mentality by partaking in a workout.

The first man to hold two belts in two UFC weight divisions simultaneously was entitled to relax and rest up on his yacht in Dubai but that is just not in his nature.

"The leg is OK. There's no serious damage," long-time coach John Kavanagh told ESPN.

"The peroneal nerve that runs down on that side of the leg, which was kicked a number of times, was completely dead,

"And then the leg started filling up with blood as well, so he couldn't move on it all.

"But as of today, he's in good form. He did a very tough workout this morning.

"I was looking for him on the yacht and he was in the gym doing an hour-long tough weights workout; that shows you where he is in the head."

McGregor made it very clear post-fight that he wants more activity and Kavanagh says he is "already harassing everybody" in regards to a third bout with Poirier.

The pair are now tied 1-1 and McGregor is motivated to win the series, harbouring hopes of the trilogy fight being fit the lightweight strap.

"That's the big drive, that's the story, it's one apiece," he added.

"They're right up there in the rankings, they're popular fighters and it's a beautiful match-up. I'd love to see lots and lots of rounds between the two of them.

"Dustin is riding high with confidence, I'm sure his confidence is super-high. We need to fix that technique with the leg and another couple of things as well, but Dustin vs Conor III for the belt in May would be amazing."
