Conor McGregor vows to 'BURY' Dustin Poirier as feud continues but UFC star offers Nate Diaz fight if rival 'bottles it' | The Sun

CONOR McGREGOR hit out at old UFC rivals Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz in a Twitter tirade.

McGregor is yet to return since July 2021 when he broke his leg in the first round of his trilogy bout against Poirier.


The American, 33, recently beat Michael Chandler, 36, in New York but was later hospitalised with staph.

McGregor, 34, responded to the news: "Heal up soon scruffy knickers."

Poirier, who was knocked out in their original 2014 fight but won the two rematches, asked if McGregor was "ready to get slapped around again."

McGregor responded: "Ye I’m in Amsterdam jacked like van damn. You weren’t just hurt pal. You were scared hurt don’t forget it.
