Dustin Poirier reflects on Khabib fight, avoids talking Colby Covington | Ariel Helwani's MMA Show

  • Published: 16 September 2019
  • Dustin Poirier returns to Ariel Helwani's MMA Show to look back at this loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242 and what he would do differently. He says he has some regrets just as any fighter would over a loss but is very grateful to Khabib for giving him a fight and for also donating $100,000 to his foundation."The Diamond" prefers to not speak poorly about American Top Team teammate Colby Covington, but adds he “has something for him” if they see each other there at the gym.

              Dustin is that likeble guy from american movies. I am in on Khabib cause he's history in the making and I want to witness it, I want him to achive greatness. That being sad, I ended up being sad for Dustin as much as I was happy for Khabib.

                              Dustin just an average fighter who beats other average fighters, and every time he gets a change he LOOSES.
                              Someone should write a book about that, would be a great comedy like Ghost busters :P

                                  Notice Colby Covington and Conor McGregor never trash talk each other, it's like they're mutually avoiding one another

                                      Dustin's a weak minded guy if a question affects his mental state.
                                      This is becoming the big problem with youth these days.
                                      Offended by anything and everything.

                                            It was super hot for Khabib as well. Khabib is from Russia mind it and he dealt perfectly then don't try to put excuse for Dustin.

He said helaughed at dustin guillotine.. Im pretty sure he didnt... But kahbib always show winner beahviour to let everybody think he s untouchable... But he isnt... dustin brought him close to the limit couple of times....

                                                    How did conor reacted to his lost to khabib? He flew away. How khabib would react to a loss? We dont know and he doesnt know... A man that can rise multiple times maybe is not a champ but sure is a real man. Respect to DP

                                                      You can hate on Khabib and pray for his downfall as much as you want, but a matter of fact Kgabib is unbeatable in this division and mark my words! Tony's fight will end in the first round by TKO or submission by Khabib.

If Khabib and Dustin swapped t-shirts, what about khabibs winning t-shirt, how much must that be worth and is Dustin selling that for his charity, if so I'm sure it will be worth more than 100k.

                                                                                    Dustin was not even close of beating khabib. To beat khabib you need a top wrestler like george. Khabib never fought the level of wrestlers george fought by the way. in 155 the wrestling credentials aren't that high to say the least... Thats funny how the UFC with their millions isnt even capable to bring a top wrestler against khabib... What about dudes like sidakov or burroughs ?

                                                                                      • marko rokosa

                                                                                          Dustin really is a Champion. Hopefully when he comes back to fight Khabib he will be able to make him go the distance.

                                                                                          • John Sim
