Brandao admits to stabbing threat, says Poirier was scared


Prior to UFC 168, Diego Brandao supposedly threatened to stab Dustin Poirier, which Poirier himself reported. Today Brandao revelaed that the threat was indeed lijit:

He was there, bouncing at the weigh-ins, staring at me. I told him backstage 'if you ever do that again, I’ll stab you with a pen.’ That’s what happened," Brandao said.

"Every time he saw me at the hotel he kept staring at me, and I responded asked what was the problem, if he looking like that because he was hungry or what. When he got inside the cage I saw he was scared. He got lucky (to win)."

Brandao confirms he threatened Poirier, but never meant to really stab him.

"I have a lot of things to change, including the way I speak, my personality," he said. "People think I'm an ignorant man, but I'm a funny guy. But when I get inside that cage, I'm fighting for my family and my career. It's hard to explain. I'm still learning, and I will be at the Top 10 one day.

Brandao is trying to protect his (apparently) sensitive ego. He's trying to find a moral victory where there isn't one. "Well he beat me but he got lucky. I could tell he was afraid of me after I threatened to stab him with a mechanical pencil."

Saw this on mmamania & instagramPoiriers response"I'm done with this guy. He's a win on my record. I'm over it. I'd love to give him a rematch. I'll fight him 10 more times. It'd be like padding my record. It's easy money. I could beat him all the time. I feel like I was more technically skilled everywhere the fight went. No problem. This is all talk. This is in the past for me. This is him trying to hold on to something and make excuses. The guy's a tomato can. It's nonsense. It's just a coward thing to do, to make excuses. He could have showed up 100 percent, made weight and still gotten a beatdown. I was ready to fight and ready to win. I can't let what he said take away from my performance."
