Spoiler alert: the main event of UFC 264 ended in a TKO by doctor stoppage with Conor McGregor breaking his tibia at the hands of Dustin Poirier. As McGregor laid immobile on the canvas, he continued to hurl insults at Dustin Poirier and his wife.
Unable to accept the doctor stoppage, he shouted into Joe Rogan’s mic, “I was boxing the bleedin’ head off him, kicking the bleedin’ leg off him. This is not over! If we have to take this outside with him, it’s on outside. I don’t give a bollocks.”
Poirier was seen yelling something inaudible back. The exchange sent McGregor off on a tangent that resulted in him pulling Poirier’s wife, Jolie, into the madness.
“Your wife is in my DMs! Hey baby, hit me back up. I’ll chat to you later on! We’ll be at the after-party. The Wynn nightclub. You look in bits, ya little hoe,” he shouted.
Poirier lost control and had to be carried out of the octagon by security. After calling Poirier’s wife, Jolie, a hoe she flipped McGregor the bird and someone from the crowd snapped a quick picture.
Dana White commented on the melee in the octagon at the post-fight press conference and said, “Leave people’s families and wives and all that stuff out of it. Family has nothing to do with it.”
It’s safe to say that the rivalry isn’t over and Poirier’s wife, Jolie, got the last laugh. Jolie also liked the following tweets on Twitter:
McGregor had been referencing these alleged direct messages all fight week. There’s no word yet if the DMs are authentic. The fight game baby; it’s unpredictable.
