Dustin Poirier Gets Angry At Inappropriate Question From UFC Analyst

Dustin Poirier Gets Angry At Inappropriate Question From UFC Analyst”

'I stopped eating it then and there, I was then on a plane to Florida, landed in Florida 48 hours later because I said yes to the opportunity. The bout was Chandler's first in the UFC after a prolonged stint in Bellator, and Hooker was viewed as a tough welcome committee.

"I want to be the world champion ... and Charles is a guy that's paid his dues", Poirier said.

Dustin Poirier reacts after his knockout victory over Conor McGregor of Ireland in a lightweight fight during the UFC 257 event inside Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island on January 23, 2021 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. That proved insufficient when he met Poirier and McGregor suggested that inactivity had been his downfall.

Poirier gets the better of McGregor at UFC 257.

According to a report published by Brazilian outlet AgFight, "Do Bronx" was offered a fight against Michael Chandler at UFC 258 on February 13, with the victor moving on to face Dustin Poirier for the lightweight belt. "He said (explicit) you guys, I'm going to take Chandler, and he's going to be the backup for this title fight". I had no words to describe that. "I was thinking I've kind of painted myself into a bit of a corner here". I thought he was going for a takedown, comes upstairs with a punch. But it doesn't really matter.

Oliviera, is also keen on meeting Poirier in the octagon and claims he's the next logical opponent after dominant win over former interim champion Tony Ferguson at UFC 256 in December.

"That's the fight that has to happen", Oliveira told Helwani through an interpreter. "I haven't been reached out yet by the UFC or by Conor's management about the trilogy fight". There's no other guy in front of him.

The Notorious promised to donate $500,000 to Poirier's Good Fight Foundation charity ahead of the contest, and Jolie visited him to thank the Dubliner.

"He didn't just (explicit) Dustin Poirier, He didn't just (explicit) on Tony Ferguson".

Khabib had been mulling over a comeback if he was left impressed by what he saw at UFC 257, but the pound-for-pound king looks set to stay retired.

"Then he had another two years out, and then he fought Cerrone".

The pair are now locked on 1-1 with a finish apiece, and McGregor's coaches have been calling for an immediate rematch for the title - much to the chagrin of the rest of the lightweight division.

Hooker knows the desire to make amends in the octagon will only become greater with time and he's already found a gym in Dubai while he waits for his flight home. For now, he's keeping himself open to options. You come to, and then you're just like, 'wow, I've just wasted four months [of training], four months of my life for that'.
