Conor McGregor Gave The Most Classy Post-Fight Interview Of His Career After UFC 257 Loss To Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor gave the most classy interview of his career after his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.

'The Notorious' fighter was knocked out for the first time in his MMA career as Poirier put him away in the second round at the Etihad Arena.

It meant 'The Diamond' levelled matters in the series between the pair after McGregor scored the knockout victory in their first meeting at UFC 178 back in 2014.

It was a tough one for McGregor to take after all the work he put in for the lightweight bout but he was full of praise for Poirier in a humble post-fight interview with Jon Anik inside the Octagon.

"His leg kicks were good, my leg was dead and I wasn't as comfortable as I needed to be," McGregor said after a third loss in the UFC.

"I have to dust it off and come back and that's what I'll do.

"I'm gutted, it's a tough one to swallow, I just want to go back to the hotel and chill with my kids and regroup."

The Irishman continued to conduct himself well in the post-fight presser, where he revealed his leg is "completely dead" and "badly compromised" following the onslaught of calf kicks from Poirier.

While the frustration and disappointment was evident, McGregor went it about and took the loss in the right way without making any excuses.

Although he plans to fight again this year, you get the feeling it won't be anytime soon after he was seen walking with a crutch.
