Conor McGregor was carried out of the T-Mobile arena in a stretcher last weekend after breaking his shin in his defeat to Dustin Poirier.

The horrific leg break has raised questions about McGregor’s future in the UFC in America.

Can he make a full recovery? Can he ever return to the top of his game and if so, who are his likely opponents?

Donagh Corby, a combat sports reporter with The UK and Irish Mirror, is back on the show this week and delves into these questions and reviews McGregor’s performance on the night.

We also again take a look at McGregor’s reputation after he threw more insults at Poirier’s wife in the post-fight interview and Michael asks Donagh if Joe Rogan was right to conduct the interview given McGregor’s distressed state.
