The couple will celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary come September 4. Many people have been looking for information about Dustin’s wife after Conor McGregor took an aim at her after their recent fight in which Conor broke his ankle and the fight had to stop.
Conor had dragged Dustin’s wife in the Twitter drama before the fight and even said Jolie keeps sending her DMs on Twitter.

Conor McGregor’s Tweets Of Jolie Poirier
The drama unfolded even before Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier met in their recent fight.
Conor teased a screenshot that he claimed was a message he had received from Jolie. Following this, during the press conference, Conor told Dustin that “your wife is your husband.” Conor later posted a picture of him and his wife, captioning, “me and the hubby walking into the press conference.”
The drama didn’t stop here. Dustin later commented on Conor’s photo, writing, “ your trash talk is as thin as your hair these days! See you soon champ champ.”
Conor did not hold back. He responded, writing, “your wife wants to see the hair around my d**k and b**s bro. See what that’s like. It’s really the message request mate, no trash talk. Man to man. It’s fu**d up! I have seen your interview with Mike. You think it was fake. It’s not. Have a think on it in the sauna anyway.”
Dustin did not respond to the message and instead took the issue personally to the ring. Dustin defeated Conor McGregor with a Trilogy Knockout by a doctor’s stoppage after Conor broke his ankle. The fight that took place on July 10th saw Poirier topping the face-off that was hyped by a lot of trash-talking, days before the match.
“This is not over! If I have to take this outside with him, I’ll go outside,” McGregor said after the match.
After the match ended, Poirier said he’d wished for a stoppage by strikes, but “a win is a win.”
The two have been long-time rivals since 2014 when McGregor defeated Poirier at UFC 178 with the first-round knockout. However, in January, Poirier revenged at UFC 257 with the second-round finish.
