When I think of Mardi Gras, I think of a parade that you’d never want to bring your children or close family to. After reading this headline, you would think the same thing, but the parade Poirier was in seemed family-friendly. That was until he slapped the shit out of a guy in front of hundreds of families watching the parade. Some guy standing on the side of the road approached Poirier’s float while holding a sign that said “Hey Justin, Your Wife Is In My DM’s”. I mean Poirier’s wife is hot but she’s nothing to write home to mom and dad about. Also, I’m not sure what the guy was expecting to happen when you walk up to a UFC fighter and talk shit.
I couldn’t tell if the fan was trying to high-five Poirier or what but he might as well have leaned into that slap. Dustin almost ripped the roof off his jeep when he tried to jump out of the top. I honestly wish he did jump out because it would have made this article a hell of a lot more interesting.
I can’t lie Poirier’s float was pretty lame. It looked like he was any basic white girl driving to high school. I mean come on, a white Jeep Wrangler. Then again UFC fighters do have the salary of a truck driver. So, it makes sense why he wouldn’t have a ton of money to splurge on a parade float. It’s crazy that after being world champion and having 2 main card fights with Conor Mcgregor Poirier only has a $4 million net worth. I guess the UFC really does need to pay these fighters more.
