Dustin Poirier shocks Conor McGregor at UFC 257

Share

Conor McGregor continues to set earnings records in the UFC, with Forbes reporting that he will pocket a $US5 million ($6.5 million) fixed purse for his UFC 257 fight against Dustin Poirier.

The 23-year-old took to social media to call out the Irishman and offered him a whopping USA $50 million (£37.5m) to step into the ring with him.

Paul points out he has a better boxing record than MMA fighter Conor McGregor while wearing an Irish flag the way a middle-aged woman wears a blanket on the first day of September.

It wouldn't be the first time a big fight had drama & shenanigans preceding it to create a narrative that gets people invested in the pay-per-view event.

"I mean, she's a four Conor - you could do a lot better". You're 0-1 as a boxer; I'm 2-0 as a boxer. McGregor famously lost to Floyd Mayweather in 2017 but he still managed to go 10 rounds with one of the finest boxers in history.

The 23-year-old recently defeated former National Basketball Association player Nate Robinson in the ring, and has quickly shifted his attention towards his next opponent. The Washington Post reported Nunes is "regarded by many as the greatest female MMA fighter ever".

His tirade soon turned personal when he insulted McGregor's fiancée, Dee Devlin, and invoking McGregor's past run-ins with the law.

Nunes accepted the offer on Twitter, but Paul dismissed the opportunity to fight her in a response on Instagram. By the end of the bout, McGregor was forced to take a seat to make sure he can greet Poirier in the center of the octagon.

"Dana White, you're a (expletive), too, you ugly, (expletive) bald (expletive)", Paul said.

Nunes should have no problems at all if this came to fruition.

Amanda Nunes is a bantamweight and featherweight world champion who has earned an estimated $US3 million across her mixed martial arts fighting career. He called out both McGregor and White when they didn't respond to his fight offer, saying they were scared, and telling them: "Sign the f***ing contract, you idiots".
