UFC 264 is in the books, and the trilogy between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier has been completed. It was the same end result as their second bout six months ago, but Poirier was far more dominant this time around. In a round that most people expected McGregor to be strongest in, Poirier landed shots, made him want to grapple, then continued to overwhelm him on the ground.

In the final seconds of a completely dominant opening round for Poirier, McGregor broke his ankle. The fight was stopped in between rounds, and an irate McGregor kept shouting and threatening to kill Poirier as he was injured on the ground, insulting his wife again, and blaming his injury for the loss.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
