The fan reacted to Poirier's recent photo from training ahead of UFC 281. The comment said "Looking good, Jolie's wife!"
Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor have met in the UFC three times where McGregor beat Poirier once in 2014 while Poirier won the bout against the former two-division champ twice in 2021.
The last fight between the two fighters was at UFC 266 in July 2021 where McGregor suffered a freak leg snap and had to sit out of the sport for more than a year.
Poirier will fight another former lightweight contender Michael Chandler at UFC 281. This will be Poirier's first fight since he lost against then-champion Charles Oliveira in November 2021.
