Conor McGregor didn’t appreciate the comments made by Dustin Poirier as he fired back at the title contender.
So where to begin? Well, Poirier, who has dropped losses two both McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomeodv, recently made some interesting comments.
Poirier spoke to MMAJunkie where he said he’d rather have another chance at fighting Nurmagomedov than McGregor.
“When I was younger, I might have wanted to fight Conor or fight anybody who beat me. But I’m just comfortable with everything. I’m comfortable with my record, with the stuff that I’ve done, the fights I’ve done. The fights that I’ve lost, I learned my lessons and tried to keep moving forward. So I’d really like to be the first one to beat Khabib.”
McGregor and Poirier fought on September 27, 2014 at UFC 178. He lost the fight by TKO in the first round, which marked the first time Poirier was stopped by strikes.
In fact, Poirier recently praised McGregor. For more on that, click here.
On the flip side, Poirier took on Nurmagomedov in a lightweight title unification bout in September 2019. Poirier ended up being submitted in the third round.
Conor McGregor Snaps Back At Dustin
“Ministry of the bleedin obvious,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “Getting concussed, slept, and fed to the canvas is infinite times worse than being held and caught in a submission hold.”
