Conor McGregor Vows To 'Kill' Dustin Poirier: 'He's A Dead Body That's Getting Took Out On A Stretcher'

Conor McGregor has vowed to 'kill' Dustin Poirier ahead of UFC 264, violently predicting that his rival will be taken out on a stretcher.


McGregor meets Poirier in a massive trilogy bout this weekend, with the Irishman taunting the American ahead of their lightweight showdown in Las Vegas.

The former UFC champ-champ says 'The Diamond' is a 'corpse' and a 'dead body' as he dropped a brutal assessment.


Speaking to The MacLife, the 32-year-old said: "He's a corpse, a dead body, a blank face that's going to get his ass whooped and taken out on a stretcher."

McGregor suffered a crushing defeat on his UFC comeback, losing to Poirier in January.

But the 'Notorious' has focused solely on MMA as he looks to settle the score.


He added: "[We] just focused on mixed martial arts, first of all. It was an 85 percent camp for boxing [before UFC 257], for Manny Pacquiao, that's how the fight came about. It was going to be a charity event, not even under the UFC banner.

"It was just because he was a southpaw and I felt a bit of pity for him and whatnot, so I'd help him out.

"And that's it. It went the way it went and I got a setback in there, but setbacks are a beautiful thing. Defeat is the secret ingredient to success, I say, and it's put me right where I need to be."


If victorious, McGregor is eyeing a title fight in December at the Allegiant Stadium.

"I feel maybe Christmas time, December," he said. "I don't know, we'll talk afterward. But that world title will be contested in the Allegiant Stadium here in Las Vegas, I would imagine so.

"I like the look of it. It's called the Death Star as well, and that's what I'm feeling like right now - a Death Star."

As for his Octagon assignment on Saturday, McGregor intends to 'slaughter' Poirier.

He continued: "Every shot I have thrown in this camp is a kill shot, so that's it. I'm going to kill this man.

"Just a slaughter and a play with a scared little boy.

"He's fighting scared like he always does, like they always do against me, so now I'm going to play with the little boy, play with me food, and then just devour it."
