Dustin Poirier had a field day after UFC announced McGregor vs Chandler on TUF

Dustin Poirier is having fun and gloating after his performances against both Michael Chandler and McGregor.

Poirier did so in response to the announcement that Conor McGregor will be returning against Michael Chandler.

Three months ago at UFC 281, Poirier last appeared in the cage against Chandler. The bout is an instant classic despite the egregious fouls Chandler committed during. Poirier defeated Chandler in the third round with a rear-naked choke and put himself back in the winning column.

Conor McGregor will be making his return against Chandler in the next season of the reality mixed martial arts reality show TUF. Dustin Poirier responded to the news in a recent tweet. With victories over McGregor and Chandler, Poirier just needed a few words to get his point through.

He wrote, “TUF all my children edition.”

UFC middleweight Derek Brunson also commented: “Cold blooded.”

Of course, this promoted an even funnier response from the man who had beaten Poirier earlier in his career – Michael Johnson.

McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, recently went on the MMA Hour and addressed the possibility of McGregor meeting Poirier for the 4th time saying:

“You’ve got the great Nate Diaz is obviously in there,” Kavanagh said. “Justin Gaethje would be a very interesting matchup, somebody he hasn’t fought before. The [Dustin] Poirier fight, we’ve done that so many times at this stage and it’s just a weird one. Michael Chandler, a great fighter, a great athlete. They’re all brilliant. They’re all going to bring something different to the contest.”

“What I would be looking for would be the one name that gets Conor moving. Gets him off his stool, gets him moving around and gets him excited. Some of the names I’ve heard him mention it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, I’d fight him,’ but if I see that level of lack of interest, I’d be nervous that won’t get him through 12 weeks of being in a very tough environment where if it’s a name that is exciting then training is fun and training is easy.”
