Conor McGregor snaps ankle and screams in agony to end Dustin Poirier fight

Conor McGregor screamed in frustration after he suffered a horror ankle break in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The Irishman was looking to avenge his defeat to Poirier from earlier this year but a freak accident at the end of the first round forced a stoppage to the fight.

McGregor went tumbling on his ankle in what looked to be a visible break of the bone.

The Notorious was immediately treated by doctors after he flagged the damage to the referee.

McGregor was then told to stay still and not move his leg by officials, who swiftly moved his fragile leg into a brace, before he was carried off stage on a stretcher.

Poirier had dominated the opening round after dealing with a couple of early leg kicks from his rival.

But the beating – and the ankle break – were not going to stop the post-fight trash talking.

Poirier said in his interview that he believes that McGregor's injury was not an accident – and that he snapped it when he delivered one of those fierce leg kicks at the start of the fight.

He claims that he felt McGregor's leg crack in one of the kicks and it then gave way towards the end of the round.

The insults then continued, as Poirier branded McGregor a "dirtbag" for comments that he made relating to 'murder' before the fight.

He also claimed that McGregor was illegally grabbing his gloves.

McGregot then hit back and said: “I was boxing the bleeding head off him, kicking the bleeding leg off him. This is not over. If I have to take him outside…

“Your wife is in my DMs,"
