After UFC 264, Ronda Rousey praised Conor McGregor’s post-fight demeanour

Conor McGregor was shouting at officials just moments after he went down on the canvas following the horrifying injury, making sure it was stated that the bout was called off due to a doctor’s stoppage and not because he clearly couldn’t continue on a shattered leg. McGregor then turned his focus to Poirier, threatening the former interim lightweight champion and his wife, Jolie Poirier, with death threats and insults. As McGregor’s actions garnered him a lot of criticism from Poirier after the bout, Ronda Rousey praised the Irishman for having the foresight to start planning his comeback even while he was laying on the ground with a broken leg.
