UFC star Conor McGregor used his praise for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder to also take a shot at rival Dustin Poirier.

Last Saturday night saw Tyson Fury put a definitive end to his rivalry with Deontay Wilder by knocking him out in the 11th round of their trilogy showdown in Las Vegas. The back and forth war swung between both men but in the end, it was “The Gypsy King” who delivered the final blow.

One man who was watching closely over the weekend is Conor McGregor who, in typical Conor fashion, both praised the fight and got in a slight dig at one of his foes.

“I love when it gets set for certain and both have an honorable showing. Not the fam in the ring fake celebrating after a freak injury etc etc you know the gig, God bless the real in this world.”

Despite McGregor and Poirier already battling one another three times, it’s still bizarre to think that a fourth meeting is an incredibly feasible prospect. Neither fighter seems to have let go of the grudge and while Poirier is focused on Charles Oliveira right now, that may change once we hit 2022.
