Like so many others, Conor McGregor is praising Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder following their instant classic on Saturday. But, the controversial star also took the opportunity to throw a verbal jab at rival, Dustin Poirier.

Fury and Wilder fought for the third time this past weekend, and Fury finished the thrilling fight in round eleven. Since the epic bout, McGregor shared out these comments about Fury and Wilder, while alluding to Poirier.

Great fight that. Both warriors, both winners. Hard to not be impressed with Deontay there. Against the much larger man and almost got it done. Great fight. 40lb’s in weight difference is A LOT. Fair play both men there, very enjoyable fights they have had together. Respect.

Their skill levels are unique but very close. A great heavyweight trilogy that was. I love when it gets set for certain and both have an honorable showing. Not the fam in the ring fake celebrating after a freak injury etc etc you know the gig, God bless the real in this world.

Congrats Tyson and Paris. Me and Dee are so happy for you and the kids. Congrats Deontay and Telli also. Was great meeting you guys recently. A real proud showing that was, and could have went either way. Amazing! Happy Sunday now today with the cheddar and the memory’s God bless

McGregor is coming off a loss in his rubber match with Poirier this past July, as the former champion snapped in his leg in the highly anticipated fight. Leading up to the bout, McGregor made various inflammatory comments about Poirier and his wife.
