Shortly after being dominated by Dustin Poirier and getting badly injured, Conor McGregor was still talking a lot of smack. The Irishman claimed he was winning the round — which two judges scored 10-8 for Poirier — then again involved Poirier’s wife in a pretty classless post-fight interview.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Poirier revealed in the post-fight press conference that “dirt bag” McGregor kept threatening to kill him again after the fight ended.

“I hope they show that behind-the-scenes stuff, man. He was still sitting on the ground, still saying I’m going to kill you, putting his hands to his head like a gun. Like bro, chill out! Chill out,” Poirier said.

“I’m trying my best to not take this personal,” he said. “but you don’t say that type of shit to people. You don’t say that you’re going to kill somebody. I don’t take that lightly.”

Cageside footage has since been released showing just what Poirier described. The clip shows McGregor, who couldn’t even stand after getting his leg broken, still repeatedly issuing death threats, and saying he will kill him in his sleep.
