Conor McGregor kicked out at Dustin Poirier as the Irishman ramped up his war of words with his rival ahead of UFC 264, but The Diamond was unfazed by the Irishman's antics.

The audience in attendance in Sin City responded well to McGregor's taunts, but Poirier - who admitted to being rattled by his rival when they met in 2014 - was left unimpressed by McGregor's comments.
