Quick to comment was McGregor’s bitter rival Paulie Malignaggi.
The former boxer was brought in by McGregor for sparring ahead ahead of the Irishman’s fight against Floyd Mayweather.
But the two had a huge bust-up when Team McGregor allegedly leaked a video of Malignaggi ‘being floored’.
The American denied it was as a result of a punch, and the two engaged in a vicious battle over social media.
After McGregor was stopped in the second round by Poirier, Malignaggi uploaded a photo onto Twitter of the 32-year-old on his back.
He wrote: “Good night everyone.”
And fellow UFC star and good friend of McGregor’s old foe Khabib Nurmagomedov Khamzat Chimaev also poked fun at McGregor.
The welterweight shared the same photo on the social media accompanied by a host of laughing-face emojis.
UFC legend Jon Jones however decided to use social media to praise Poirier, writing: “Congratulations DP.”
The 32-year-old Russian tweeted: “This is what happened, when you change your team, leave the sparring partners who made you a champion and sparring with little kids, far away from reality.”
A rematch against Khabib now seems further away than ever for McGregor, who will have to tread a new road to title glory.
Poirier is now the interim champ, and should Khabib end his retirement, the 32-year-old American should get his shot.
