The tension between Islam Makhachev and Dustin Poirier reached a boiling point during their face-off ahead of UFC 302. The two lightweight contenders exchanged heated words, leaving fans eagerly anticipating their clash in the octagon. However, in a surprising turn of events, Makhachev has now revealed that they’ve buried the hatchet.

The Fiery Face-Off

When the UFC 302 press conference concluded, the spotlight shifted to the face-off stage. Jon Anik brought both fighters together, and that’s when things escalated. Poirier, never one to mince words, vowed to knock Makhachev unconscious during their fight and called Makhachev a Motherf***er, which agitated the light weight champion. Makhachev, the reigning lightweight champion, took offense to Poirier’s choice of words and warned him against such disrespectful language.

Islam Makhachev’s Response

In an exclusive interview, Makhachev shed light on the intense face-off and what transpired afterward. “We all fixed it,” he said, referring to the heated exchange. “Sometimes emotions run high, especially in this sport. But Dustin and I had a conversation backstage, away from the cameras. We both realized that our words got the better of us.”

Makhachev emphasized that mutual respect exists between fighters, even when tempers flare. “Dustin is a great competitor,” he continued. “We’re both here to prove ourselves, and sometimes that passion spills over. But ultimately, we’re professionals, and we know what’s at stake.”

Moving Forward

As the fight approaches, both Makhachev and Poirier are focused on their training camps. The lightweight title hangs in the balance, and neither fighter wants to let emotions cloud their judgment. Makhachev concluded, “We’ll settle our differences in the cage. Afterward, we’ll shake hands and move forward. It’s all part of the fight game.”
