Dustin Poirier secured a TKO win over Conor McGregor in the much-anticipated trilogy at UFC 264. The fight might have ended due to an unfortunate injury, however, many fans believe Dustin was the rightful winner of the fight. But, as per Colby Covington that was nothing but a fluke win for Poirier.
In a recent interview with Submission Radio, Colby Covington talked about Dustin Poirier’s last win over Conor McGregor. He said that McGregor suffered a freak injury during the fight and that can’t be considered a legit win for Poirier. Covington also went on to criticize Poirier for his post-fight comments and said that he should be thankful to McGregor for making him the biggest payday of his life. Covington stated:
“He didn’t beat him. That’s not a win. Conor broke his ankle. He throws a kick, it landed on the elbow, it’s a complete freak of an accident. That’s not a win. I don’t count that as a win. It’s a fluke injury. He got the luckiest whatever you want to call it in the history of the sport. Good, you got a nice easy paycheck. And you walking and strutting in the guy’s face at his downfall while he is sitting there laying on the ground. That guy just made your career Dustin. You should show that guy some respect. He made you the biggest money you will ever make in your career. You are a jobber, you are a nobody. No one would care about you if it wasn’t for Conor. And you are strutting in the face. So who is the nice guy now?”
