Conor McGregor has revealed that his leg was already “severely damaged” prior to his fight with Dustin Poirier.

The 33-year-old former UFC champion said in a series of tweets on Wednesday, that the reason he didn’t overreact when he suffered a broken leg in his third fight with Poirier was because he knew before hand that his leg was already “severely damaged.”

“In my last camp I’d a severely damaged left leg. Many of my sessions consisted of starting in open guard bottom. And staying there. Full rounds remaining on bottom. I was beating people up until they backed away from me. It then translated to the fight. True story,” McGregor said.


“Same leg, same spot. I attribute it to why I wasn’t in as much shock as Chris/Anderson where. I knew something may happen in advance,” he added.

McGregor also revealed that he expects to be able return to fighting sometime in mid 2022 and that he already feels “stronger” then he ever has before.
