Dustin Poirier’s Coach Told Him “No More Guillotines” – Here’s What Happened Next

Dustin Poirier’s Coach Told Him “No More Guillotines” – Here’s What Happened Next

At UFC 299, Dustin Poirier showcased his unwavering commitment to his signature move – the (jumping) Guillotine Choke.
However, his head coach, Mike Brown, wasn’t exactly happy with it.

During his fight against Benoit Saint Denis, Poirier was advised by Brown not to go for any more Guillotines, a moment that was caught on live TV.
However, it appears that the broadcast didn’t catch the rest of the exchange between Dustin and his coach.

Brown explained what happened in an interview with MMA Fighting:

They actually didn’t play it in between the rounds.

After the first round I said: “No more Guillotines”, and then they switched to the other corner.

But right after I said that, Dustin said: “No, but I can hit it! I can hit it!”
I just replied: “You crazy bastard.”

Brown continued to explain:

I literally said that and then he went and jumped another one.
They didn’t play that part, but there was more words said after I said don’t jump the Guillotine.

He does admit that Poirier does hit the move in practice, but…

He puts a lot of guys to sleep in the gym, to be honest.

He does have a very good one.
He just hasn’t hit them in the fight.
