The controversy surrounding Dustin Poirier’s wife Jolie Poirier sending a DM request to Conor McGregor continues to be the talking point of the entire beef between the Notorious and Dustin Poirier.
While a lot was said, and words were exchanged between both the fighters in the lead-up to the fight, many fight fans criticizing the former dual champion for crossing the lines in his trash talk ahead of the bout.
Despite suffering a horrific injury, most of the UFC fighters and fans criticized the Notorious for his distasteful comments on Poirier’s wife Jolie Poirier after the conclusion of the fight at UFC 264. Here’s what McGregor said to Jolie Poirier inside the Octagon as Dustin Poirier taunted him before his exit from the UFC Octagon.
“Your wife is in my DMs. Hey baby, hit me back up on chat later on. We’ll be at the after-party, the Wynn nightclub, baby. You’re looking bi*, you little h*e. F** him.”
Many fight fans believe that McGregor absolutely lost it as he made disrespectful remarks even after the fight, sitting near the fence inside the Octagon. Conor McGregor suffered a horrific leg injury in the closing moments of the first round as Dustin Poirier picked up yet another win over the Notorious to further cement his legacy as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time.
Did Conor McGregor cross the line in his trash talk to Dustin Poirier’s wife Jolie McGregor?
Conor McGregor quite evidently crossed the line in his trash talk against Dustin Poirier by bringing his family to the entire beef. Even UFC president Dana White was not too pleased with the Notorious dragging Poirier’s family to the entire feud.
In the lead-up to the fight, McGregor had claimed that Poirier’s wife slid into her DM’s, and while he did not reveal what she had texted him, McGregor went on to prove with a video that the message request was indeed authentic.

Poirier’s wife, Jolie Poirier, who was present inside the Octagon as Dustin’s hand was raised for the win via doctor’s stoppage, did not hold back and flipped off at The Notorious. Needless to say, McGregor has stated that he intends to return to the Octagon and it should be stated that whenever the Notorious returns, it’s certainly going to be of epic proportions.
