What Conor McGregor Told Dustin Poirier Seconds Before Knocking Him Out At UFC 178

Conor McGregor branded Dustin Poirier a "p**sy" just moments before sensationally knocking him at UFC 178.

They first met over six years ago when both fighters were in their mid-twenties in a featured bout at UFC 178.

McGregor and Poirier were embroiled in a heated build-up as the Irishman made his Las Vegas debut and he wasted no time in putting away the American, taking him out in the first round.

And 'The Notorious' continued to talk trash inside the Octagon as he said: "What you got p**sy? Is that all you got p**sy?"

Speaking about McGregor's comeback, UFC president Dana White said: "I don't know [what to expect].

"Obviously Poirier has wanted this fight for so long now, the rematch with Conor. He's a much better fighter than he was the first time they fought. Conor's always dangerous.

"From what I've seen from him on social media, it looks like he's in great shape, he's training hard. Even before this, he was training to do some type of charity bike event.

"The guy's in shape."
