'I got a bottle for you' - Dustin Poirier offers a bottle of his hot sauce brand to Conor McGregor
At the UFC 257 press conference, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier shared a light-hearted moment when the Irishman heaped praise on his UFC 257 opponent, and said that he would love to taste Poirier's hot sauce brand.
"You’ve got the hot sauce Dustin. I’d love to taste the hot sauce," said McGregor.
Dustin Poirier responded by saying that he has a bottle for McGregor, to which, The Notorious replied:
"I’d appreciate that. I’ve got a bottle of Proper (McGregor's whiskey brand) for you. I’d love to share that."
With an exchange of hot sauce and whiskey bottles, it was only cordiality between the two UFC stars, unlike the time when they first shared the octagon in 2014. McGregor has repeatedly stated that he admires Poirier for his philanthropic work and the way how he bounced back from his loss to become the lightweight interim champion.
We are more mature - myself and Dustin. We are both fathers and we have come through a lot. We both are engaging in much philanthropic efforts. He's doing a great thing with the Good Fight Foundation, how could I not respect Dustin, one for that, and two for how he handled the last loss, and how he came back, and how he rose up became a champion. That's admirable in my book," McGregor told ESPN's Ariel Helwani.
The McGregor vs. Poirier fight is set to take place on January 23 in the Etihad Arena, Abu Dhabi. The winner of the fight is likely to contend for the UFC lightweight championship in his next outing.
