Dwayne Johnson Applauds Poirier's Admirable Reaction to Gaethje Defeat

Dwayne Johnson shared some heartfelt words of support for Dustin Poirier after his defeat to Justin Gaethje at UFC 291. During the fight, Gaethje secured victory in the second round with a powerful leg kick to claim the coveted 'BMF' title.

In the aftermath, Poirier couldn't hide his disappointment, especially considering that he had previously defeated Gaethje in 2018 by stopping him.

Although Gaethje walked away with the 'BMF' title, Poirier expressed gratitude for the blessings he had received despite the setback.



“It’s heartbreaking. But I keep coming back like Pookie. It keeps calling me. I can’t stop. I might need another hit. I don’t know. I’m just taking it one day at a time, one minute at a time right now.

“But I’m happy right now. My life is good, my family is good, my daughter is excited for me to get home. We’re not at a funeral here.

“I’ve won. I’ve won life. I already won. Where I come from, I’ve already won,” Poirier

In response, Johnson had nothing but praise for Poirier.



Gaethje's triumph opens up the potential for an exciting showdown between him and the winner of the Islam Makhachev versus Charles Oliveira lightweight title bout.

Meanwhile, for Poirier, there remains a slim possibility of another clash with Conor McGregor. However, uncertainty looms over McGregor's return, leaving fans in the dark as Poirier contemplates his next move.
