McGregor claimed that Jolie Poirier has been trying to communicate with him on his social media. He shared a screen recording to prove he’s speaking the truth after the couple denied his accusations.

Now, WWE Legend Mick Foley has reacted to the situation. He believes that the way Conor McGregor is going after Dustin Poirier’s wife is not acceptable behavior. He thinks this should not be how a competitor or a champion conducts oneself following a defeat.

Undoubtedly, Conor McGregor commenting about Dustin Poirier’s wife following the loss wasn’t expected. Several fighters, boxers, and wrestlers have trash-talked their opponents after a defeat. However, trash-talking family is unacceptable in the industry.

Additionally, this is a good time to note that Jolie Poirier did not walk away with her husband after the fight. While the doctors were attending to him, Jolie Poirier sign-abused Conor before walking away.

Everyone doesn’t agree with Mick Foley

While some supported Mick Foley’s statement, others have a different point of view. According to some, Dustin Poirier did not behave like a champion either when he insulted Conor’s injury.

Moreover, there is a significant portion on social media who genuinely believe Conor McGregor said what he said out of frustration as he was interviewed immediately after his loss.

All of the above combined could have pushed McGregor to the edge to react the way he did.

Finally, the audience will definitely witness Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor fight again in the future. If history is evidence, they will pick up this rivalry when the time is right.

Conor McGregor shows evidence for the outrageous claim

McGregor shared a screen recording on his social media to back his claim after Dustin and Jolie Poirier denied his accusations. However, he didn’t reveal the message she sent in her DM request.
