UFC 257: Dustin Poirier stops Conor McGregor by second-round TKO – as it happened

“It’s hard to overcome inactivity over long periods of time,” McGregor says. “That’s just it. I just wasn’t as comfortable as i needed to be. … I have to dust it off and come back and that’s it and that’s what I will do.”

Will he be back in 2020?

“Of course,” McGregor says. “I need activity, guys, come on. You don’t get away with being inactive in this business and that’s the way it is. I’ll take me licks.

“It’s a tough one to swallow.”
