Conor McGregor Rips Dustin Poirier’s “Deteriorating” Chin

“All you’ve got to do is look at Dustin Poirier’s last couple fights. In his last contest [against Akira Corassani] he fought a [UFC reality show] reject. Nobody gave a s— and he got wobbled 40 times. His chin is deteriorating. Every single contest he [gets knocked down]. A gust of wind and he does the chicken dance. Coming up against me, that’s not going to be good. I’m going to crack him with a jab and he’s going to wobble. It’s going to be a first-round knockout, mark my words.”

News broke earlier today that Nick Diaz would face Anderson Silva at the annual UFC event during Superbowl weekend. Dana White made the announcement on ESPN’s SportsCenter stating the following:

“The greatest off all-time Anderson Silva is back. His doctor gave him clearance to fight. The fight the fans have been waiting for, the fight the fans have been screaming for.. also back is Nick Diaz so we have made Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz Jan. 31 in Las Vegas. It will be the main event and it will be five rounds”

Not a bad way for both fighters to return to action at all.
