American mixed martial artist (MMA) Dustin Poirier does not intend to forgive the Irishman Conor McGregor for his words said on the eve of their third fight. He told about it during a press conference after the tournament of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) in Las Vegas.
Poirier admitted that he is ready to beat the Irishman again. “We will fight in the octagon or on the street. He threatened to kill me — I will have to answer for such words,” the American said.
Earlier, on July 11, Poirier won the third fight with McGregor. The Irishman stumbled, missed a shot from the American, and broke his ankle. The doctor was forced to end the confrontation. After the fight, the head of the UFC, Dana White, said that he intends to organize a fourth fight between the athletes.
Before the third fight, McGregor repeatedly insulted his opponent. On social networks, he called Poirier a “redneck” and then promised to “kill” the American.
In January, Poirier also emerged victorious from a duel with McGregor. Then the American managed to become the first who knocked out the Irishman in professional MMA.
