Unbelievable effort and chin from Moutinho there especially on 11 days notice.
I've never seen a bloke take as many hits to the head and not go down, and Sugar has power in his punches.

His corner really should of called it before letting it get to that stage but he's definitely won over fans with that performance.

Seems like everyone is going for that 75k bonus.

Conor is a piece of shit. He'll never be humble no matter how many losses, and there's always an excuse.

Crawl into obscurity with your ankle mate.

Who looked on top at the time it happened?

Dustin in a somewhat close one, however given the context Round 1 is his best and most dangerous round.

The fact he was losing the stand up battle and tried to grapple on the ground showed he still has no back up plan, and looked noticeably tired at the end of the round prior to the ankle.

Can't see any way he can justify fighting a top 10 fighter on his return.

Dustin is a beast. Look at his record at lightweight. He well and truly deserves a title shot next which will be a massive fight. Oliveira is incredible as well.

He's got to fight his way back up now if he still has the desire.

Stupidly McGregor got into a grapple fight with Poirier, which is one of Dustin's strengths.

Conor had him unsettled with his kicks to Dustin's right leg. They were stinging him. Should've stayed upright.

It would have been hilarious if Conor actually submitted Dustin.

Yeah going for that guillotine was such a bizarre risk to take, the second it failed I though the fight was over. Surprised that McGregor even made it back off the canvas.

Dustin let him up because McGregor was illegally pulling down on the glove. Ironically conors leg would be fine if he didn’t do that lol
