Poirier dropped McGregor with a hook before finishing him on the mat
“When you get off a 310ft yacht, you’re living that good life, it’s tough to be a savage.
“On his way up, [McGregor] was a young, hungry kid. He didn’t have any money, and he wanted nice suits, nice cars, nice houses.
“He’s got everything he ever wanted. It goes this way or that way.”
McGregor was interviewed in the Octagon following his defeat by Poirier, and said: “It’s hard to overcome inactivity,” referencing the fact that he had not competed since his 40-second victory over Donald Cerrone a year ago.
“The leg kicks were good, my leg was dead. I just wasn’t as comfortable as I needed to be.
“Dustin’s some fighter. I have to dust it off and come back. I need activity. You don’t get away with being inactive in this business.
“I’ll take my licks. I’m gutted. It’s a tough one to swallow. I put in a lot of work. I’m gonna get home to my kids at the hotel and just chill for a bit.”
