Last week, in the buildup to UFC 264, Conor McGregor left no doubt about the right way to win a fight.

“I only count knockouts,” McGregor told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. “The only thing that’s final in this business is a knockout. All the other s—, the decisions, the taps. All that s— means nothing to me.”

Naturally, McGregor then attempted a deep guillotine on Dustin Poirier in the first round of their main event bout, seeking a submission victory.

As soon as you have the answers, McGregor changes the questions.

McGregor lost the bout against Poirier following referee stoppage. He suffered a broken tibia in the first round, which meant a TKO victory for Poirier.

From the mat, McGregor continued his onslaught of vicious insults toward Poirier, clearly crossing a line when stating, “In your sleep, you’re getting it, in your sleep you’re dead, you and your Mrs.” Those are lines more suited for a villain in an action film than by a mixed martial artist, but fellow UFC great Ronda Rousey saw it for what it was: McGregor already promoting his next fight.
