Dustin Poirier's Wife Flipped Off Conor McGregor After Instagram DM's Comment During Post-Fight Interview

Dustin Poirier's wife Jolie was spotted holding up a middle finger towards Conor McGregor after he made a comment about her being supposedly active in his Instagram DM's.

Following a first-round defeat against Poirier at UFC 264 - where he sustained a nasty broken leg just seconds before the end of Round 1 - a furious McGregor gave a passionate post-match interview.

In the chat with Joe Rogan, he claimed to have "boxed the bleeding head off" Poirier during round one before comparing his injury to that of Anderson Silva, who infamously broke his leg against Chris Weidman in 2013.


McGregor cut a frustrated figure as he lay on the Octagon floor. He even brought Poirier's wife, Jolie, into the conversation. "Your wife is in my DMs," he said. "Hey baby, hit me back up I'll chat to you later on, I'll be at the after-party; The Wynn night club."

A picture has since emerged of Jolie flipping McGregor as he spoke to Rogan.

Just days prior to the fight at UFC 264, McGregor posted a screenshot showing what he claims to be a direct message from Jolie on Instagram, with some comparing his antics to Jake Paul.

The Irishman also referred to Poirier as "Jolie's wife" throughout their pre-fight press conference but the insult fell somewhat flat.

Poirier responded to McGregor's comments after his win. "Shut your b***h a**e. I can take even the trash - there's no holds barred on the trash talk. But murder's something you don't clown around on. There's no coming back from that.

"This guy was saying he's going to murder me and all kinds of stuff, he's going to kill me, I'm going to leave here in a coffin. You don't talk like that to people man.

"Karma's not a b***h, she's a mirror, and this guy's said the wrong s**t and I've been busting my ass. Sometimes these things happens. Naw, I beat the guy."

Poirier did show his class in his post-fight interview, saying: "I hope this guy gets home safe to his beautiful family, you know."

UFC president Dana White was disappointed by McGregor's post-match comments about Poirier's wife.

"Ah yeah I don't like that," he said after a reporter brought up the incident. "Leave people's wives and family and that stuff out of it. Family has nothing to do with it."
