Steve-O talked about how Poirier, as the nicer guy and the better fighter, will be victorious at UFC 264. Clearly, ‘Notorious’, who didn’t take these comments too well, responded by saying Steve-O is a “crackhead.”

Now, finally, Steve-O has responded to the comments made by McGregor. He said, “Conor McGregor called me a crackhead, and my feelings are hurt. I really don’t know why he would attack me like that when all I said is that I think Dustin Poirier is a nicer guy, a better fighter, and that he would run through Conor with ease.”

Like Steve-O, many people have chosen Poirier over McGregor to win the fight. The main reason behind this is that people don’t think McGregor is motivated enough to win this fight. As McGregor has achieved almost everything in MMA, people think he lacks the drive to succeed.
