After suffering a broken leg, most people’s attention would be on that leg…
But not Conor McGregor.
After suffering a broken leg during the first round of his UFC 264 main event against Dustin Poirier, McGregor sat on the mat and threatened to kill both Poirier and his wife as Joe Rogan was attempting to conduct his post-fight interview with the victor.
In newly released footage from cageside, McGregor can be heard yelling at Poirier, “In your sleep you’re getting it, in your sleep you’re dead. You and your Mrs, it ain’t over.”
There was a ton of bad blood leading up to this fight, highlighted by some of McGregor’s comments towards Poirier regarding his wife, Jolie, during the pre-fight press conference.
Images of Jolie Poirier giving McGregor the middle finger in the octagon after the fight have also been making their way around the internet. I guess this footage just serves to provide more context for Jolie’s reaction.
