Former interim UFC lightweight champion Dustin Porrier, after an early victory over Conor McGregor at the UFC 264 tournament, expressed bewilderment because of the Irishman’s behavior on the eve of their fight.
“Obviously, this is not such an unambiguous victory as when you stop an opponent. Although why not? I blocked a low kick, and I think that’s why he broke his leg. It cracked and then, when he spun on the cross, the leg finally broke. I am not sure about it, but I am happy that I won, that I will return healthy to my family. He said that he would kill me, that I would never see my family again – that’s what made me mad.
Even when Conor was sitting on the floor with his broken leg, he showed that he would like to kill me. What’s wrong with you, bro? This is a sport, this is a fight, we may have a dislike, but we don’t need to say such a thing. He has a family, and I want him to return to them healthy. I want to go back to my daughter. It doesn’t matter whether you win or lose, you don’t have to play with it,” Dustin Porrier said in an interview with ESPN.
