Dustin Poirier claims Alvarez gave him ‘wet willy’ in their UFC rematch
Dustin Poirier said at the UFC on FOX 30 post-fight press conference on Saturday night that Alvarez stuck his finger into his ear during their rematch.
“The weird thing is, when I had him in the guillotine, he stuck his finger in my ear and was pulling me down and the ref warned him,” Poirier said (transcript via MMAFighting.com). ”And he put his finger right back in my ear. So, this is an old dog that knows a lot of tricks.”
”I don’t want to say somebody’s a dirty fighter,” Poirier said. “But the first fight, you kneed me; the second fight, you tried to elbow me illegally and you gave me a wet willy. We’ve got to draw the line somewhere.”
Porier is now closer to a shot at lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov’s title, so that’s all that really counts.
“People are always going to point to something, Poirier said. “These checks are going to cash. And I have another win on my record, and another step closer to fighting for the world title. So they can point and say what they want. I’m laughing all the way to the bank and all the way back home to my family with another win that’s been earned. Nothing’s been given and that’s that.”
