Alvarez to Poirier: You ‘wanted out’
Despite the fact that they hugged each other after the match at UFC 211, it seems they took the gloves off now. Eddie Alvarez cracked Poirier with a pair of illegal knees midway through the second round of a wild back-and-forth fight. Referee Herb Dean went on to controversially deem the bout to be a no contest. Afterward, both Poirier and Alvarez expressed a desire to run things back with a rematch.
Check out their exchange on Twitter.
„When you wanna do it @Ealvarezfight ????? I owe you some stitches“
„@DustinPoirier Next fight is You 100… don’t get too excited Your not the first guy to hurt me badly before I finished him ..knee or no knee U wanted out.“
And the Poirier replied again:
„Lol your silly. I’m gonna stop you next time.“
