Conor McGregor Is Brutally Trolled On Social Media Following UFC 257 Defeat

Conor McGregor has been the victim of some brutal photoshops after his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.

'The Notorious' fighter promised "a masterpiece" in his first bout for over a year but was knocked out for the first time in his MMA career at the Etihad Arena.

McGregor conducted himself respectfully in his post-fight interview and gave props to his opponent for avenging defeat from their 2014 encounter, but the Irishman ended up being utterly rinsed on social media.

The image of him laying on the canvas after Herb Dean called the stoppage has been given the photoshop treatment and some of the efforts are just ridiculous.

Of course Bernie Sanders and his mittens featured quite heavily, as did several entries of McGregor sleeping in various locations.

After all, this is what the internet does:

After the fight McGregor was seen limping with a single crutch and told a press conference his leg is "completely dead" and "badly compromised" after he was on the receiving end of some brutal kicks from Poirier.


This was the dual-weight champion's third UFC defeat following on from submission losses to Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
