Conor McGregor targets Dustin Poirier and family in deleted tweets

9

Conor McGregor said the feud between himself and Dustin Poirier wasn’t over.

McGregor was seething in anger immediately after the conclusion of UFC 264‘s main event trilogy bout with Poirier, which ended after the first round due to McGregor’s broken tibia.

Before, during, and after Poirier gave his post-fight remarks to Joe Rogan in the cage, McGregor verbally attacked Poirier while being tended to by medical personnel.

Late Monday night, the former two-division UFC champion went on a Tweet-and-delete spree, targeting Poirier and his wife Jolie in a series of Tweets that were quickly deleted. MMA Junkie captured screenshots of the cryptic messages.

One tweet consisted of three pictures with no caption. It included a screenshot of Mateusz Gamrot’s Instagram photo of Poirier holding his ankle, a picture of Poirier and his daughter Parker smiling, and a closely cropped version of Poirier from the previous photo.

I’m a dangerous man.

Gonezo

I’m a nasty dude I promise you.

Your wife is your husband.

Hey you guys! I don’t want to associate any negativity with my foundation so I’d like to take this chance to apologize for dustin’s wife trying to message me privately on Instagram.

McGregor underwent successful surgery on Sunday to repair his injured limb. From the hospital, McGregor sent a video message with a different tone, although he still expressed frustration with the outcome of the trilogy.

Once healthy and ready to return to the cage, all parties including UFC president Dana White, seem to be on board with scheduling a fourth fight between McGregor and Poirier.

However, White was not thrilled with McGregor’s trash talk that involved Poirier’s family.
