Dustin Poirier is cut from the best, so it’s no wonder that he stands true to his moniker Diamond. However, a little more than a year ago, Dustin Poirier acquired a new nickname, courtesy of Conor McGregor who mocked Poirier by stating, “your wife is your husband” as he proceeded to call him “Jolie’s wife.”
It seems like Dustin Poirier has well and truly embraced that nickname as he recently retweeted a comment made by a user on his social media platform, reacting to his recent photo from training ahead of UFC 281.
“You’re only a little bit*h, your wife is your husband. You’re only a little bit*h of a thing, a silly little hillbilly. JOLIE’S WIFE, JOLIE’S WIFE, JOLIE’S WIFE. You little bit*h of a thing.” McGregor had said during the pre-fight press conference ahead of the trilogy fight at UFC 264.
Looking good, Jolies wife!
