When Did Conor McGregor Last Fight?

The Irishman had his last outing in 2021. He went on to lose two fights consecutively against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 and UFC 264. Unfortunately, ‘Notorious’ lost both the bouts via stoppages. He suffered his maiden KO loss against Poirier at UFC 257.

The defeat came as a massive setback in McGregor’s career, which he was supposed to avenge at UFC 264. However, that didn’t happen as McGregor broke his ankle.

At the end of round 1, McGregor misplanted his foot and snapped his ankle in half. While the striking exchange was going on interesting, McGregor’s footsteps cost him the fight. A lot of people thought ‘Notorious’ would never return to MMA. But he seems ti have recovered fully and will take on a hard opponent like Chandler.
