Conor McGregor gets personal ahead of UFC 264, posting what appears to be a direct message (DM) request from opponent Dustin Poirier’s wife, Jolie Poirier.
On Tuesday, McGregor posted a DM request from Poirier’s wife, Jolie; however, the authenticity of the screenshot has not been verified. An example of actions speaking louder than words, “The Notorious” left no note with the screen grab.
The build up for UFC 257: “Poirier vs. McGregor 2” was the antithesis of their first fight as both combatants expressed mutual respect. The rubber match falls somewhere along the middle with McGregor taking occasional jabs at Poirier, but “The Diamond” insists on letting his hands do the talking — a far cry from the hot-headed Poirier who first fought McGregor at UFC 178 back in 2014.
