During the UFC 264 pre-fight press conference, McGregor often mocked Poirier’s relationship by claiming. “Your wife is your husband.”
‘The Diamond’ appeared to make light of the dig when he posted a picture of him and his wife arriving at the UFC 264 pre-fight press conference.
“Me and the hubby walking into the press conference,” Poirier wrote on social media.
McGregor replied to the tweet with a screen recording that shows him going onto Instagram and proving that Poirier’s wife had tried to direct message him on the app.
“As real as it gets. #shelyintoyoubro #thatswifey #properirishanimal,” McGregor wrote alongside the video.
On Tuesday, McGregor shared a screenshot from what appears to be his official Instagram account, however, the authenticity of the image was not verified – until now.
In the screengrab, ‘Notorious’ appears to have received a direct message request from Jolie Poirier, under the username mrsjoliepoirier.
Even if this DM request is real, it’s most likely an innocent bi-product of McGregor’s promise to donate to The Good Fight Foundation – a charity ran by the Poirier’s.
The donation never came and caused tension between McGregor and Poirier that reached boiling point at the UFC 264 pre-fight press conference.
Do you believe Dustin Poirier’s wife is actually trying to contact Conor McGregor online?
