Conor McGregor Shared a New Angle of His Horrible Leg Break While Fighting Dustin Poirier

"Can see the leg was broke before I even stood up."

Conor McGregor has shared new footage of the leg break he suffered in his defeat to Dustin Poirier, and let’s just say the footage isn’t for the feint of heart.

Back in July, McGregor broke his left fibula and tibia during his third, and supposedly final, fight with Poirier, who ended up taking the victory via a first round TKO. The Notorious was left in a cast for months afterwards, but now he’s shared new footage of the fight, which appears to confirm where the leg break happened and show how he landed four unanswered shots with a broken leg.

“Good angle,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “Can see the leg was broke before I even stood up. It was broke before the guillotine even.

“It’s why I went for it. Four shots to zero here in this clip to close the fight before the injury. This fight was going my way 100 percent. But big congrats lads hahaha ye right. Rats.

“Can see the weight in those upkicks he was eating here as well. Which weren’t even the two heaviest upkicks I landed. Where was he going from open guard top here?

“He not like upkicks thru the face? Elbows down thru the crown? No like? Tough s**t, see ya soon.”

Despite McGregor’s leg break keeping him out of The UFC Octagon until next July, at the earliest, he is back training and is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

McGregor recently posted a video of him shadow boxing to Instagram, as well as a picture of the work he’s put into his upper body while his lower half has been out of action.

McGregor’s post certainly caught the imagination of his fans who commented: “Bruh this guy just broke his leg and he’s working harder than most of us,” and “The greatest comeback in the history! Ever!”

We have to wait and see about that, but there’s no denying McGregor’s looking swole AF right now.

If there’s one thing Adelaide is known for, it’s turning it on when major events and festivals come to town. During the 2024 edition of the AFL’s Gather Round – otherwise known as the festival of footy – the city didn’t disappoint. Men’s Health was on the ground to soak it all up, exploring the city in select Toyota vehicles. Similar to the round itself, the cars from the AFL’s premier partner live up to the hype.
