(CNN)Fighter Dustin Poirier defeated Conor McGregor early Sunday in a much-anticipated Ultimate Fighting Championship re-match that left McGregor down for the count in the second round.

The stunning defeat came after McGregor spent more than a year away from the UFC.

"I'm very excited to be back here," he said during a pre-fight press conference on Thursday.

McGregor first announced back in October he had accepted the fight against Poirier -- in what was a rematch from 2014, where the Irish fighter took less than two minutes to knock Poirier out.

The American told CNN he learned a lot from that defeat and six years later, felt "more prepared now on the mental side. "

"Before, when I was younger, I didn't put a whole lot into the mental side of fighting.

I listened to critics.

I listened to Conor," Poirier previously said.
