McGregor was finished in dramatic fashion by Dustin Poirier in the second round of their main event bout at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi, prompting social media to catch fire with trolls and hating fans taking the opportunity to laugh at the Dubliner’s misfortune.

Some even hopped on the current trend of using the now-infamous pic of US Senator Bernie Sanders at Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration to mock McGregor, who suffered the first knockout loss of his MMA career.

One fan served notice on McGregor by posting a pic of Sanders hugging an unconscious McGregor, stating the adage that “The internet is undefeated.”

Another asked, “How will Conor McGregor ever come back from this? Money can’t delete these memes, man.”

Others piled in, using a MyPillow ad, Minecraft, and pics of Jake Paul’s boxing victim, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, to make fun of McGregor’s TKO loss on “UFC Fight Island.”

Of course, McGregor’s victories have seen him raised to the heavens as his star power, and bank balance, have gone to stratospheric levels over the years.

But now, after his defeat to Poirier took his record over his last six bouts to three wins, three losses – with his three defeats all coming inside the distance – some fans are wondering if “The Notorious” will ever reach the heights that saw him capture UFC titles in two weight classes earlier in his career.
