Conor McGregor has quoted Mike Tyson to take a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov trashing him on the Hotboxing comment.
“I wanna eat his children!!! When’s the last time he’s even seen them actually? His wife ? Mother? How bout [sic] you go spend some time with your kids and family for a change and keep my name out of your mouth b4 [sic] you get trapped somewhere again you mightn’t be so lucky next time.” Tyson said the ‘children’ line in the past, saying he wanted to eat Lennox Lewis’ children. Conor later deleted the tweet.
According to Jesse On Fire, talked about initial reports which stated that Dustin Poirier had gotten the back-end for his first fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 178, which saw The Notorious One defeating The Diamond. However, it seems Dustin Poirier had no back-end at all for his fight against The Notorious One. Megan Fox also previously dropped a bombshell related to Dustin Poirier.
The UFC has released a video clip on YouTube in which Dustin Poirier talks about fighting Nate Diaz once his trilogy fight with Conor McGregor is done with. Dustin Poirier made it clear that he is definitely interested in squaring off against Nate Diaz in a future fight, but he thinks Diaz may not be far from retirement.
“Yeah, for sure. We’ll see. I don’t know how long he’s going to be fighting for or what’s going on with him, but I still owe him one.”
Dustin Poirier recently spoke to American Top Team’s Punchin podcast, where he admitted that he had a sore knee for the first it after his fight against Conor McGregor.
“I’ve been checked by a lot of heavy kickers, never before have I left fight week and been sore just on my actual bone,” he explained. “Like, the knee. My knee was sore. Not my thigh or calf, my knee was sore.”
There was one kick, I turned my knee out a little bit. I didn’t fully check it, I didn’t have my weight like a traditional check. I knew that was a bad one for him. I knew that one hurt him bad,” he recalled.
“I think it was on top of his foot, but you never know if that could’ve caused a torque on his shinbone and cracked it, I don’t know. He was throwing hard kicks, and a lot of them were hitting my knee.
“And I didn’t get to, like I said, traditionally check the kicks, but I did turn my knee out. And it was bone on bone and it was worse for him.”
