Conor McGregor has once again gone scorched earth on Octagon rivals Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier. 

After coming up short against Nurmagomedov’s protege and reigning lightweight world champion Islam Makhachev at UFC 302 in June, ‘The Diamond’ put his fight kit up for auction on behalf of The Good Fight Foundation, a charitable organization established by Poirier dedicated to knocking out hunger. Unfortunately, the winning bidder failed to pony up the dough—something that happens far too often.

But according to Poirier, ‘The Eagle’ is interested in taking the kit off his hands. 

“Somebody outbid the last bidder at the last minute and didn’t pay,” Poirier said during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour. “People do that all the time. People suck, man. Ali Abdelaziz reached out to me, Khabib wants to buy it. For the fight with Makhachev, so I’m trying to figure that out.”

Of course, Nurmagomedov may have some trouble getting his bank to clear the transaction, but that’s a whole other story

Getting wind of Poirier’s story, Conor McGregor went off on social media, calling ‘The Diamond’ and his wife a couple of “scammers” before once again dubbing Nurmagomedov a “terrorist” and taking a dig at the Hall of Famer’s recent run-in with the Russian Federal Tax Service.

“Scammers him and the wife. SCAMMERS.” 

“Buy the shorts that he quit in in the most important fight of his life. #NeverBeen”


“Khabib is a terrorist in serious debt with his own country in which he has now exiled from. You couldn’t make this sh*t up. Dustin is a fool. An asshat. That foundation is a scam.”

While McGregor taking a shot at ‘The Eagle’ is as common as breathing, it’s been a while since the former two-division titleholder took a dig at Poirier.

In fact, the last time ‘Mystic Mac’ really went at the former interim champ was immediately following their trilogy fight at UFC 264 in which McGregor accused Poirier’s wife, Jolie Poirier, of being “in his DMs” as he laid on the canvas with a broken leg.
