Dustin Poirier can’t stop himself from trolling Conor McGregor in one of the recent Twitter interactions. The rivalry between Poirier and Mcgregor goes way back to 2014 at UFC 178 when they first shared the octagon. Since then they have fought twice and the overall results favour Poirier by 2-1.
But in the last encounter in 2021 at UFC 264, the results weren’t what the fans were expecting. During the fight, McGregor snapped his left leg and broke it and Poirier was declared the winner via doctor stoppage. Although McGregor was getting dominated in the first round, many fight fans believe that the trilogy fight is not the right way to decide the rivalry.
Dustin Poirier’s reaction to Conor McGregor’s training clip
McGregor has been recently very regular regarding posting his training footage on his social media. The Irishman never fails to give his fans a little sneak peek at his training regimen. Currently, Mcgregor is in the last stage of recovery from the horrific leg injury that he suffered at UFC 264 against Poirier.
In his latest Twitter post, the former UFC double champion shared a clip of him practicing his boxing skills along with the legendary 90s hip hop track, Still D.R.E playing in the background. ‘The Notorious‘ the caption mentioned that his strikes are synonyms to nightmares for his opponents inside the octagon. “The shots nightmares are made of.,” wrote Mcgregor.
As fans got excited and hailed the superstar for the post, some didn’t find it appealing. Former rival, Dustin Poirier took this opportunity to send a sneaky insult toward McGregor. The Louisiana native replied with a funny GIF. Which says ‘Stop it’, basically not buying the whole idea of nightmare punches of the ‘Mystic Mac’.
It seems like both these fighters still have unfinished business with each other inside the octagon. Regarding that matter, both McGregor and Poirier have been positive about having a fourth fight in the future. But it’s hard to tell when and under which circumstances the fight will take place. Even though both the fighter are massive draws of the promotion, running back the fight for the fourth time can be a little weird. As said by Former UFC superstar, Chael Sonnen earlier.
