4. Dustin Poirier is a peahead
Conor McGregor was facing the biggest test of his career thus far when booked against Dustin Poirier in 2014 at UFC 178. The test featured an established and dangerous ‘Diamond’ who was hoping to derail the hype train and throw his own name in to the featherweight title mix.
Unfortunately for Dutin he got a dusting at UFC 178, and it happened before he even entered the octagon. McGregor’s hilarious ‘peahead’ rant will go down in history as one of the funniest trash talking jives in MMA history.
McGregor on Poirier:
“I’m just being myself, I like to look good and whoop ass. It’s what I do best, you know? I’m not trying to be nobody but me. September 27, I am going to rip Dustin’s head clean off. It makes no difference. Dustin peahead thinks it’s all talk, but when he wakes up with his nose plastered on the other side of his face, he’s going to know it’s not all talk.”
“All you got to do is look at Dustin’s last couple of fights. The last contest he had he fought a TUF reject and nobody gave a shit about it; and he got wobbled about forty times. His chin is deteriorating. Every single contest he gets in, he hits one knee. A gust of wind and he does the chicken dance. Coming up against me, that’s not going to be good. I’m going to crack him with a jab and he’s going to wobble and I am going to put him away early. It’s going to be a first-round KO, mark my words.”
