Conor McGregor slams "embarrassing" Poirier showing before posting petty tweet

The pain of defeat for Dustin Poirier was exacerbated further by Conor McGregor who mocked his defeat to Charles Oliveira.

Poirier tapped out in the third round to the Brazilian, failing to become the lightweight champion at UFC 269.

And his rival called the fighter’s performance as ‘embarrassing’ when responding by a post by Nate Diaz, who initially wrote: “How Conor let Dp f*** him up hella times he sucks.”

Replying, McGregor said: "You lanky string of p***; he got lumped around and got lucky twice. That’s it, is what it is.

"[This was an] embarrassing night for him alright. That closed guard game. Wtf was that. Wow! Shocking."

Afterwards, McGregor posted a selection of photos of him in and around Brazil – Oliveira's home nation – with the caption: "Brazil are the champs! Incredible! I remember Brazil."

McGregor is still making a recovery from the broken leg he sustained in his third fight with Poirier in July.

He has been focusing on weight-training ahead of his return next year and is now at a hefty 190lbs.

Oliveira will now defend his belt against Justin Gaethje in the new year.

The Brazilian was on the back-foot in the opening round of Saturday night’s contest, before coming out in the second and dominating his opponent.

In the third, he managed to get Poirier to tap out, claiming the win and the title.

Who will McGregor face next in the UFC? Let us know in the comments section.

"I'm the world champion," Oliveira said. "I'm the man. They talk. I do it. They can hit me a lot; I'm going to walk forward."

Meanwhile, Julianna Pena pulled off one of the biggest upsets in mixed martial arts history, after she pulled off a submission win over Amanda Nunes in the second round to win the UFC bantamweight title.

She said after her huge victory: “I’m not surprised motherf*****s!

“I told you. Don’t ever doubt me again. Will power strength and determination. It will take you places. I definitely expected a win and the world is my oyster.”
