Anthony Smith blasts Conor McGregor for making excuses following loss to Dustin Poirier

Fellow UFC fighter Anthony Smith blasted Conor McGregor for making excuses following his loss to Dustin Poirier, saying “we are all injured.”

McGregor lost via first-round TKO (doctor stoppage) to Poirier in their trilogy match at UFC 264, and afterwards, it has come out that he had a leg injury heading into the fight. Speaking on Sirius XM’s Fight Nation, Smith was asked about the reports of McGregor being hurt coming into the fight. For Smith, being injured is something that all MMA fighters have to deal with, and he believes that it’s not a valid excuse for McGregor.



“Everyone who loses has an excuse,” continued Smith. “It’s new for Conor to be like that. I’m not the excuses guy but in my circle, all my friends know what’s going on. They know pre and they know post. Like, ‘I know you’re never gonna say this but what was going on here? I know you’ll never say this publicly because you don’t make excuses.’ And I’ll absolutely tell my friends what’s going on. Knew that my hand was broken going into the Glover (Teixeira) fight and I never said anything about it because it’s not an excuse. Glover probably had a broken hand. We all are injured.”
