Dustin Poirier Angrily Responds To Conor McGregor's Tweet
Conor McGregor continues to poke at Dustin Poirier by uploading a brutal reminder of how their first fight went down.
Poirier, who lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242, briefly mentioned retirement before aggressively campaigning for a rematch against McGregor.
He called him out on Twitter to which McGregor replied, and the Irishman has posted another Tweet to the American veteran ahead of a potential showdown.
The former 'champ-champ' shared an image of himself landing a shot at Poirier, who replied by saying: "Run it back tough guy!"
Poirier then followed up that reply with another Tweet: "No smoke No smoke."
McGregor reacted angrily to Poirier's initial call out.
"I fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds bro. You should have spoke [sic] my name with a bit more respect in that build up," he wrote on Twitter.

"McGregor's not next' Motherf***er, it's McGregor always! McGregor is the goal! Always! Say that now and I'll think about it."
Poirier and McGregor first fought at UFC 178 in 2014, when both fighters were fighting in the featherweight division.
'The Notorious' won the bout by a devastating first round TKO before becoming the champion of the weight class.
Poirier's hoping to put it right in the rematch and he laid down a strong challenge to McGregor.
"Why not? If we're respecting the rankings, I'm number two, he's number three. Everybody else is pretty booked up," he said on the Ariel Helwani show.
"It makes sense. We've both lost to the same guy in a world title fight... Financially it makes a lot of sense for me. If the guy's not going to fight, they gotta take him out of the rankings or he's just going to keep log-jamming an already top heavy division.
"I want to fight before my birthday, January 19. I want to have another fight before I'm 31 years old. That's just a goal of mine.
"If it's that easy just do it again," he added. "Try and beat your record. What you get me in last time? Two minutes? Try and get me in 1:30. Let's see if you can do that."
