“Notorious” gets the wife of “The Diamond,” Jolie Poirier, involved in the narrative for UFC 264.

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.

UFC’s 2023 PPV DEBUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off its New Year pay-per-view (PPV) campaign on Sat., Jan. 21, 2023, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Glover Teixeira, looking to stop the momentum of surging No. 7-seeded up-and-comer, Jamahal Hill. In the co-main event of UFC 283, which will take place inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one of the greatest rivalries in promotional history resumes as Flyweight kingpin, Deiveson Figueiredo, battles interim belt keeper, Brandon Moreno, for a fourth (and likely final) time.

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.
