9. Dustin Poirier hillbilly
Lightweight turned featherweight (and now lightweight again) Dustin Poirier was subject to many harsh words from Conor McGregor, but few (apart from number four on this list) were more sharp than his ‘quiet hilbilly’ remarks.
“He doesn’t impress me at all. I believe he’s a basic fighter, he throws basic shots, and in my eyes he’s a journeyman. It’s that simple. Don’t get me wrong, I like the kid. He is a quiet little hillbilly from the back arse of nowhere. His cousin is probably named Cleatus, I have nothing against the guy but coming up against me, that’s not going to be good. I’m going to crack him with a jab and put him away early.”
