“He just runs his mouth a little bit too much. He just kind of brings that kind of hatred towards himself. But, at the same time, people want to see him fight. So he’s doing a job of promoting the sport and the featherweight division. But he just got dealt a bad hand this time.”
“I’m the man – period. I’m the best in the division. I’m going to be the champion.”
“He’s just poking at something that doesn’t matter. When it’s all said and done – September 27 – me and Conor McGregor are going to step in. His fans can’t come with him. His coaches and friends can’t come with him. It’s going to be me and him and I’m going to whup his ass.”
In a recent interview with MMAFightCorner.com, Dustin Poirier discussed his recently booked gig against Conor McGregor.
The two fight at UFC 178.
