Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor in the second round of their lightweight bout at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

It was a major shock in superstar McGregor's return to the octagon for the first time in a year.

American Poirier staggered Irishman McGregor with an overhand left and then dropped him to the canvas with a straight right before referee Herb Dean waved it off at 2min 32sec of the second round.
