Dustin Poirier Is Asked Whether He 'Would Kill' Conor McGregor During Podcast And It's So Awkward

Dustin Poirier was asked if he'd 'kill' Conor McGregor in the Octagon during a podcast recording and it was incredibly awkward.


Both men have been friendly during the build up, but Theo Von attempted to spice things up.


After Poirier explained how much he wants to win the fight next month comedian Von, who has a reputation for not pulling any punches, replied: "Would you kill him?"

A flustered Poirier, clearly taken aback by the question then says: "I mean, I don't wanna kill anybody. That's not a goal.


"I don't really wish that on anybody."

Von then says he shouldn't have really asked the question and both men let out a chuckle before moving on.


Earlier in the interview, Poirier explained that he is still envisioning victory against McGregor on 'Fight Island', despite losing their first contest back in 2014.


"I envision a lot of different things happening and the fight going different ways, but at the end I always envision me winning.

"Getting back on that long flight home with the win, come and see my daughter. That feels so good you know.

"Whatever it takes to make that a reality, I'm willing to do so let's just go."

Meanwhile, McGregor is preparing for his first fight in nearly a year by making promises in regards to his performance on social media.


The former featherweight and lightweight champ tweeted: "I promise a masterpiece."

Who do you think will win the main event of UFC 257, Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier?
