McGregor stumbled back in horrifying fashion after placing his weight down and his left leg buckled from underneath him, with the bout then stopped by doctors at the end of the first round in Las Vegas.
But despite the grim nature of his injury and another chastening loss in their trilogy series, McGregor appeared in high spirits as he thanked fight fans for their support and insisted he would ‘build back’ in a short video.
Conor McGregor says he feels ‘tremendous’ despite his leg break in his defeat by Dustin Poirier
‘Just out of the surgery room, everything went to plan,’ McGregor said. ‘Everything went perfect, I’m feeling tremendous.
‘We’ve got six weeks on a crutch now and we begin to build back. I want to thank all the fans all the way around the world for your messages of support.
‘I hope you enjoyed the show. I want to thank all the fans in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena, 21,800 fans in attendance. The place was absolutely electric.

‘It was a hell of a first round. It would have been nice to get into that second round and then see what’s what. But it is what it is. That’s the nature of the business.
‘A clean break of the tibia and it was not to be. Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want, but you’ve done nothing in there.
‘That second round would have shown all. Onwards and upwards we go. We dust ourselves off, we build ourselves back, and we come back better than ever.’
Against the odds, McGregor was able to survive the rest of the round, but he was later forced to leave the octagon on a stretcher – despite previously vowing that Poirier would be the one to exit in the same manner.

And the outspoken Irishman appears to have no interest in leaving his rivalry with Poirier in the past either, in light of his bullish comments to Joe Rogan moments after his leg had shattered.
‘I was boxing the bleedin’ head off him,’ McGregor said while he sat on the floor wearing a brace.
‘Usual s****, dived to close the distance. This is not over.
‘If I have to take this outside with him it’s all outside. I don’t give a b*******.
