Only five minutes of in-cage level of competition separated Conor McGregor from “billi-strutting” all over 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, factors had by now taken a transform. But when a microphone was set in his hand by UFC commentator Joe Rogan, matters got even uglier.
Visibly frustrated by the conclude of the UFC 264 most important party vs. Dustin Poirier, which finished immediately after his leg bent powering him in grotesque style, McGregor loudly proclaimed that the sequence will not end after three fights.
“I was boxing the bleeding head off him and kicking the bleeding leg off him – the usual shite to near this distance,” McGregor stated. “This is not over. If I have to just take this exterior with him, I’ll go outside. I do not 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 possibly have wounded his leg early in the combat when a kick was checked. McGregor vehemently denied that any personal injury transpired prior to the last sequence. He then turned his interest to Poirier’s spouse, Jolie, who gave him the middle finger.
“There was no examine,” McGregor explained. “Not a person of them was checked. Your wife is in my DMs. Hey child, strike me again up on chat later on. We’ll be at the soon after get together, the Wynn nightclub, infant. You’re hunting suit, you small hoe. F*ck him.”
McGregor focused Jolie in the course of UFC 264 combat week, often putting up that he experienced a pending information ask for from her on Instagram, even though the context of the DM was under no circumstances defined specifically. At a person level, McGregor designed vulgar remarks that claimed she needed to see his genitals. He also frequently termed Dustin, “Jolie’s wife” at the UFC 264 pre-struggle information meeting.

Immediately after a week of trash-speaking, Poirier mirrored on the back again-and-forth in his post-fight job interview and admitted he assumed McGregor’s antics went far too far.
“There’s no holds barred with the trash chat, right?” Poirier explained in the cage. “But murder is not something you clown about with. There’s no coming back from that and this dude was stating he was likely to murder me and all sorts of stuff. He was telling me he was going to get rid of me tomorrow (and that I) was going to depart right here in a coffin. You never chat like that to folks, guy. I hope this person gets home safely to his gorgeous family, you know?”
