Daniel Cormier refutes Al Iaquinta’s allegations about Dustin Poirier prior to UFC 257 – MMA Sports

Former UFC Champion Champion Daniel Cormier refuted Al Iaquinta’s allegations regarding Dustin Poirier prior to UFC 257.

“Raging Al” had previously accused “Diamond” of trying to lure Conor McGregor into a rematch in January this year.

“What is that man doing?” Iaquinta said ESPN.. “What is he a fan of Connor? He’s like a fan fighting Connor. It’s very moody. Connor said,” I’ll fly you and donate my money to your charity. It’s like. I said, “Bro, when I fly my (swearing) self and defeat (swearing) from you, I donate my money. What is this? Kumbaya? What a joke? ? He has already lost the fight. “

Al Iaquinta continued to attack Dustin Poirier, a friend of Daniel Cormier and a fellow Louisiana.

“If a fight happens, there is no doubt that Dustin lost the fight. He has already (acknowledged) everything. He said,” Thank you for the fight. We will fight in Ireland and everywhere, and thank you. , We fight for charity, it would be great. “It’s like getting out of here. This is a battle. what? Are you kidding me? Are you going to thank the man? You think Connor really does-this is for him, this is not for you, Dustin. Please relax. “

Al Iaquinta’s previous comments on Dustin Poirier’s thinking prior to the UFC 257 rematch with Conor McGregor clearly caught the attention of Daniel Cormier.

Old UFC champion ESPN analysts responded by refuting Al’s allegations.

“Dustin Poirier is not happy to be here.” Daniel Cormier said (via MMAJunkie). “I saw Al Iaquinta say that a while back.’Dustin is too respectful.’But the kid, the man. The kid is from Lafayette, Louisiana. He’s a dog. He’s going to fight wholeheartedly. He may not always win, but when he sees Dustin’s fight, he’s a nasty son of a gun, hey. And he fights. Appears with a desire. He will fight Connor to the best of his ability. I don’t know if he will win. But he will fight him hard. He will fight him as hard as he can. I will fight. “

Do you think Dustin Poirier has already admitted defeat as Al Iaquinta suggests, or do you think “Diamond” will pose a tough challenge to Conor McGregor in the rematch as Daniel Cormier suggests? ?? Share your thoughts in the comments section PENNNation!
