“And I know Conor (McGregor) was talking crazy yesterday about killing me and all that. I go to sleep praying every night that he gets home to his family safe. I’m not here to hurt anybody or do anything like that. So I just want to put that out there,” said Poirier.
During the Irishman’s interview with TheMacLife on Friday, he said he would “slaughter” Poirier at UFC 264. Here is what Conor McGregor had said:
“I’m going to kill this man. Just a slaughter and a play with a scared little boy. He’s fighting scared like he always does, like they always do against me, so now I’m going to play with the little boy, play with my food, and then just devour it,” said Conor McGregor.
