Conor McGregor is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in sports. He draws fans, media men, and paparazzi wherever he goes. As McGregor made his way to the arena ahead of his main event fight with Dustin Poirier, a cameraman was so caught up on filming the Irish MMA superstar that he accidentally hit a pole while doing so. SportsCenter caught the hilarious moment of the man bumping into the pole. Well, to whoever that man's employer is, now you know your personnel's dedication for his job.
At least the man get knocked out cold, unlike Conor McGregor. The Notorious One was just recently put to bed by Poirier in the second round of their Saturday main event showdown.
Conor McGregor previously defeated Poirier via an early first round TKO victory in their first encounter back in 2014. Now, Poirier gets his revenge with a knockout finish at the 2:32 mark in round two.
Poirier caught McGregor with a strong right hand that sent the Irishman down to the canvas. With Conor McGregor dazed on the floor, Poirier went in for the finish to avenge the defeat from their first fight.
Conor McGregor has now suffered his 5th defeat in his mixed martial arts career and his third in the UFC. This comes after he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in 40 seconds nearly a year ago.
Meanwhile, Poirier just secured arguably the best win of his career by taking down the first fighter in UFC history to hold championships in two weight classes at the same time. Perhaps a championship match may be next in line for the 32-year old Poirier after his knockout of Conor McGregor. Some high-impact moments such as the one above with the cameraman contained a lot of hilarity and little importance. Poirier's stinging strike contained no hilarity but will resonate through the fight world for some time.
