Conor McGregor was not happy with the UFC promo for UFC 269 main event between Dustin Poirier vs Charles Oliveira.
McGregor has been very vocal with how he has felt about Poirier’s victories over him. In the first fight, he claims he was winning before the leg kicks were too much for him. He claimed that his boxing was on point and he would have won were it not for those leg kicks that Poirier implemented.
In the second fight, McGregor broke his leg and has claimed since Joe Rogan sat next to him inside the cage that the win was not legitimate. He was even yelling that the win was a doctors stoppage and not a TKO win. The promo that the UFC used showed footage of McGregor breaking his leg in the third Poirier fight.
The promo showed Oliveira’s win over Michael Chandler, while also showing Poirier’s win over McGregor.
Conor McGregor didn’t take to kindly to the UFC using that footage to promote the fight
In a deleted tweet that was captured by Adam Martin, McGregor took aim at the UFC in his most recent deleted tweet.
“Is that the only shot yous had of him ‘landing’ in that fight? Didn’t land. He just bowled forward while I’m on one leg there. Garbage! It’s 1 a piece and any push other wise is for the bin. Stick me in this promo in the back ground as a dark, rich, evil shadow. Boost the Ppv’s.”
McGregor is no stranger to deleting tweets that are a bit controversial. He has deleted tweets in the past when he had some off putting comments about Khabib Numragomedov’s father and many other times as well.
Does Conor McGregor have a right to be upset with how the UFC is using him to promote the fight between Oliveira vs Poirier?
