Conor McGregor has been accused of becoming a ‘parody of himself’ and a ‘spent force’ after his defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on Saturday night.
The Irishman was left with a fractured tibia and fibula at the end of the first round, forcing referee Herb Dean to call the fight after advice from the doctor.
Although it was not the conclusion to the trilogy fight which fans had hoped for, the bad blood which spewed as a result of ruthless personal attacks by McGregor left a sour taste.
Poirier accused the Irishman of cheating and making threats against his life even after the main event had finished.
The 32-year-old dominated the sport and brought new eyeballs to MMA during a remarkable rise up until 2016, where he became the first ever simultaneous two-belt world champion before leaving to fight Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring.
Boxing fan Simon Jordan is admittedly no fan of MMA, but even he was left disgusted by the actions of ‘The Notorious’.
“Conor McGregor is just a parody of himself now,” Jordan told talkSPORT. “He is no more of any significance.
“All he is is noise and seemingly, an ability to generate revenue and if that is what this sport now represents, or his participation in it…
“I mean I’m not interested in him, I never was. I was never interested in his voyage into boxing with Floyd Mayweather.
“I now think he is a spent force in the field where, once upon a time, he was the leading light.”
