    When Mcgregor fought Dustin Poirier, he dropped him with a straight left, then preceded to punch him in the back of the head 2-3 times, which is what really stopped him. Last time I checked back of the head shots were illegal.

    Should he have been disqualified?

    He should have been disqualified in every fight because he's a gutless fraud. Strip him, and close this dark chapter of UFC history.

    The sooner he goes away completely. The better it is for the legitimacy of the UFC. Dana, too.

    looks like a regular old pea head to me. He needs to learn how to take losses better and stop making excuses.

    Even if they were to the back of the head, no. Poirier was done the second he hit the mat.
