Both the fighters have been constantly taking shots at each other. So much so that even the families of the fighters got dragged into it at some point. Therefore, during the conference, Poirier was asked whether it was getting too personal for him.

However, before ‘The Diamond’ could give his reply, McGregor jumped in with a few words of his own. He said, “You’re only a little bit*h, your wife is your husband. You’re only a little bit*h of a thing, a silly little hillbilly. JOLIE’S WIFE, JOLIE’S WIFE, JOLIE’S WIFE. You little bit*h of a thing.”

‘Notorious’, who is known for his wordplay, always tries to get under his opponent’s skin. McGregor tried that here too as he started a chant calling Poirier ‘JOLIE’S WIFE.’

However, Poirier did not seem affected by it at all and replied to McGregor in a very cool manner. He said, “You used to be a lot better than that man. The trash talk was a lot better than that. Fu**ing weak. “

Earlier Conor McGregor had shared an image of Dustin Poirier’s wife’s Instagram request

This was not the first time Conor McGregor took shots at Poirier regarding his wife. Just a few days back, ‘Notorious’ took to Twitter to share a screenshot of Dustin Poirier’s wife sending him a message request. However, Poirier had later clarified that he believes the screenshot to be fabricated.

McGregor, who certainly posted the tweet to play mind games with Poirier, seems willing to win the fight by any means necessary. ‘Notorious’ is one of the best trash talkers in UFC history and his latest stunt at the UFC 264 pre-fight press conference was just another proof of that.
