Dustin Poirier: I Have ‘Bled Too Much To Be Disrespected’
“I would never count another man’s money,” Poirier added. “I hope Chandler makes a ton of money in the UFC. But the fact that I’ve been in the UFC for 10 years. Fight of the Year contenders over and over again, eight main events, two pay-per-view main events. And the guy is going to come in here and make more money than me. I understand it’s business but if you want me to fight that guy, we got to step it up.
“That’s a slap in the face. I’ve shed too much blood in the Octagon. That’s just where I’m coming from — maybe it doesn’t make sense for you but I’ve bled too much to be disrespected.”
