McGregor v Poirier 3: What has been said?

McGregor and Poirier had been highly respectful of each other in the build up to their rematch, but this time around it’s been far more heated.

McGregor had threatened to pull out of the third fight after Poirier claimed that he hadn’t delivered on his vow to donate $500,000 to his charitable organisation – the Good Fight Foundation.

He tweeted: “You’re ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears? You f****** brain dead hillbilly. $500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool.

“You must be new to money. The fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid.”

Poirier cheekily responded to McGregor on Twitter simply with the word ‘ok’ along with a GIF of the moment he knocked out his lightweight rival in January.

McGregor has since vowed to silence his rival once and for all.

“He talks some amount lately,” McGregor said. “He’s going to pay for that, that’s for sure. It’s not going to be nice.”
