Dustin Poirier celebrated his trilogy victory against Conor McGregor at UFC 264 in fine style with an after-party in Las Vegas. 

There was an unsatisfactory conclusion to the highly anticipated main event as McGregor suffered a broken leg towards the end of the first round and the doctor then called a halt to the contest.  

Poirier desperately wanted to beat McGregor with a clean win but the result means there’s a strong chance they will fight for a fourth time and the hollow win did not stop ‘Diamond’ hitting the town afterwards.

He let his hair down in the after-party sponsored by Celsius and appeared to be lapping up the acclaim. 

Poirier rubbed shoulders with other celebrities and fans at the venue having earned a bumper pay day at the T-Mobile Arena.   

The 32-year-old hardly looked as though he’d been in a fight, with just a small scratch on the left side of his forehead visible in photos. 

McGregor found some early success with strikes but Poirier took over in the first round and found himself on top of the Dubliner. 

He escaped a guillotine attempt and landed some heavy elbows on the ground. 

Then in the closing seconds, the fight returned to the feet and McGregor took a step back before collapsing on his leg.

He was furious in the post fight interview and was adamant that he will fight Poirier for a fourth time once he has healed up. 

The victor was also unsatisfied with the outcome and in his post-fight press conference, said: ‘It sucks, man, because I was going to beat the guy if his leg would have held up.

‘I’ve had a lot of fights. There’s always been a definite end – well, besides the first Eddie Alvarez fight (a no contest) was kind of grey area. 

‘But it’s not a good feeling. I won and I feel like what happened was because of something I did, but it’s not like I went out there and submitted him or put him away.’
