Only five minutes of in-cage competition divided Conor McGregor from “billi-strutting” around the cage and becoming taken out of it on a stretcher.
By the time McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) was on the canvas with a splint on his leg, points experienced previously taken a convert. But when a microphone was set in his hand by UFC commentator Joe Rogan, issues got even uglier.
Visibly disappointed by the close of the UFC 264 most important occasion vs. Dustin Poirier, which finished immediately after his leg bent at the rear of him in grotesque trend, McGregor loudly proclaimed that the series will not close after 3 fights.
“I was boxing the bleeding head off him and kicking the bleeding leg off him – the regular shite to shut this distance,” McGregor explained. “This is not over. If I have to take this outside with him, I’ll go outdoors. I never give a bollocks.”
Prior to McGregor’s interview, Poirier (28-6 MMA, 21-6 UFC) experienced his time on the microphone and claimed that McGregor may have wounded his leg early in the combat when a kick was checked. McGregor vehemently denied that any personal injury occurred prior to the remaining sequence. He then turned his focus to Poirier’s spouse, Jolie, who gave him the center finger.

“There was no check,” McGregor explained. “Not one of them was checked. Your spouse is in my DMs. Hey little one, hit me again up on chat afterwards on. We’ll be at the soon after bash, the Wynn nightclub, infant. (Inaudible), you little hoe. F*ck him.”
McGregor qualified Jolie all over UFC 264 battle week, frequently submitting that he had a pending information request from her on Instagram, though the context of the DM was under no circumstances explained precisely. At one position, McGregor designed vulgar remarks that claimed she desired to see his genitals. He also consistently termed Dustin, “Jolie’s wife” at the UFC 264 pre-battle news convention.
Soon after a week of trash-conversing, Poirier mirrored on the back again-and-forth in his article-struggle job interview and admitted he believed McGregor’s antics went far too much.
“There’s no retains barred with the trash speak, appropriate?” Poirier reported in the cage. “But murder is not some thing you clown all over with. There is no coming again from that and this male was declaring he was going to murder me and all varieties of stuff. He was telling me he was heading to kill me tomorrow (and that I) was going to depart right here in a coffin. You never communicate like that to men and women, male. I hope this dude will get home properly to his stunning household, you know?”
