Conor McGregor tore his ACL during the second round of a fight against Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26 in 2013. McGregor was still able to win the fight in what is one of the toughest UFC moments in history! It's not just about pain tolerance, but the instability that McGregor would have had in his knee makes this a pretty wild story that he was able to survive and win the fight. Now that he's set to make his UFC return against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, let's take a look back to learn about this bit of UFC history!

Nogueria Vs. Frank Mir (Mir breaks his shoulder apart) and Tim Sylvia Vs. Frank Mir (broken arm). I also agree with the doing Santos Vs. Jones. You're amazing Dr. Brian and I like your knowledge of MMA! I know you're probably busy af but do you train BJJ or anything??

Wow. Clever clickbaiting but, this is a positive as I enjoyed the content and explanation and analysis. This channel is another example of a company that gets its audience. The UFC may very well end up as the standard of all standards in popularity both worldwide and in the US. The NFL is on the precipice of decline and perhaps a massive decline as QB protections have led to complete domination by granted, the most talented of his era and by championship statistics the greatest of all time and, therefore most likely one has to concede the arguments for the inability to know if Brady could’ve done this in a era where. It was more dangerous and punishing. It’s hard to concede he would have had this level of longevity but, again... it’s unfair to say he has to do something that’s not possible and therefore the record is heavily enough weighted for asterisks and alterations. Which, I agree is an insane end to how this argument goes. That all said, the inflation of currency is a saturation of something’s rarity meets its demand and this measure is a measure that talks in time as a living thing of the same nature. So, I make a case that with Brady, he’s now at a point where he’s inflating everything of his legacy to the product of a league where he produces unstoppable successes of an unprecedented number now teetering on the absurd. People will therefore depart and go to the UFC like a guy with guns and girls to throw around. Perhaps we will all be as breathless by then as Greg Hardy but, all kidding aside, this is how it’s done and where it’s going. While Conor had a rough go of it and Dustin punished him hard for it, Conor is still the most responsible love or hate him, for the ascension and incline of inclines that brought me and mazillions to this once fledgling and teetering sport more so than any other fighter and that’s by a wide margin but, without taking away the other successes of marketable fighters bringing eyes to fights by being charismatic and captivating under bright lights. He’s been beaten by hard fighters. Nate, is an incredible full facet fighter with uncrackable toughness. Khabib is so dominant in one of if not the very best of all the focusable skills that is the grappling aspect of MMA. It’s damn near perfect but, I think Conor can get him if anyone can but, Khabib might be waiting for a few more with a Nate and a Dustin and a Gathje and an Olivera with it going .500 or either side of it, that’s likely enough mileage on the braver and more seasoned by combat, apex professional. After a hiatus and a Conor getting knocked out, choked out or a submission assuming any one of those up to 3 more of either/or, and that will all but, take Conor’s chances to out maneuver the shoots and get Khabib committed enough to standing up with Conor and while formidable as we saw when Khabib slammed him with a right that nearly knocked him out, as Conor was thinking nothing but, watch that shoot and didn’t move his head as he otherwise ought to have. Getting Khabib flustered and forced to deal in trading shots will go as we saw most of round 3 go at 229 when Khabib shot for another double and Conor, stuffed him and still had the wind to end the fight going forward in a Toe to toe Head to head fight. Khabib told Cormier that he’s never been hit as hard as Conor hit him in that round 3 of 229. Eventually, Khabib weathered it and with the effective smothering, ground and pound, and the shot that did drop Conor but, didn’t quite knock him out to see it ended there, Conor was simply drained like the prey of the python when Khabib got the shoot once more and too early in the round to allow it to have happened without Khabib letting up until he got the neck. Credit to Khabib as I’m not claiming it was anything besides a dominant win and a lopsided loss for Conor. Still. There wasn’t a flawless victory and, now there’s some knowledge that Khabib fears that left or respects it enough to engage in a rematch as it might go the same or better for him, there’s the very much known chance that Conor is capable of catching him at any moment after just one stuff of the shoot which he will know better how to defend and where/when in each round to defend it becomes critical. I’d imaging Khabib to be an odds on if not overwhelming favorite and with Conor as a dog, I just might like his chances knowing that is the one he wants more than any other fight period. Khabib to his credit is in position to play smart and frustrate and we know Sugar Ray got Hagler like this and Khabib 100% should do it exactly the same which takes the psychological warfare to the master himself but, in a way for Khabib to own as his very own masterful manipulation of the advantage. It has to happen eventually. I don’t get excited for Charles Olivera or Justin Gaethje. Poirier is damn hard not to like and admire and 100% Nate Diaz is a loveable hardcore M-Fer. Masvidal is lovable and charismatic too. Tough loss to Usman though. I can’t quite get excited to see him as that rematch of Khabib and Conor. It’s a war that deserves a few battles.

had the exact same injury except for full miniscus tear and mcl half torn. incredible he kept on going, the instability and instant pressure you feel in your knee is incredible. my dad heard the pop from over 10 yards away. worst part was prob that damn machine that bends youre knee to get the range of motion back. ice water machine was pretty cool though

It can't be the first instance. The bottom person (Holloway). Has no strong bite on connor's leg with his. It's hard to tell from watching and have never been in that situation yourself. This means while his leg is trapped in there, it's free to move sideways. There no pressure on the knee in valgus. Plus, the foot is in the air. If the knee moves inward the foot turns to accommodate any pressure on the knee. The Injury has to be during the second instance where his foot was on the floor and the leg was straight

@Shady Grady I mean he did when it first happened but since then they've ruled it a nerve issue. Brian Sutterer said it was a concussion even showing film where he thinks the concussion happened.

Hamstring tension can add significant stability in an acl tear. I shredded my acl, knee swelled like a balloon but lachman test showed no laxity immediately after the injury.
