UFC 264 will go down on Saturday and everyone is waiting to see if Dustin Poirier will be able to take Conor McGregor down again. The two are tied at one win each, and a third bout will settle the score.

Conor McGregor knows how to take shots on social media. He is known for stirring the pot whenever he can. One recent tweet got a lot of attention and he didn’t even have to come up with a caption.

Jolie Poirier is the wife of McGregor’s opponent this Saturday. Sure, Notorious might be happily married and just celebrated the birthday of another child, but Dustin’s wife might want to have a private chat.

McGregor uploaded a photo of DMs on Instagram asking him if he will accept Jolie Poirier’s request to engage in a direct message conversation. It’s unclear if Conor smashed the approve button.


This kind of screenshot can always be faked nowadays because there is a generator for everything. It doesn’t take away from the fact that Conor McGregor took a pretty wicked shot at Jolie Poirier days prior to him stepping in the Octagon with Dustin once again.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
