Dustin Poirier wasn't happy with Diego Brandao for missing weight by a whopping seven pounds Friday for their planned featherweight fight at UFC 168 on Saturday night.

But he was really steamed by what Brandao had to say to him on the way out to the weigh-ins...

No knives in the octagon homie. UFC should cut ties with this guy, he may have potential but as of now teach him a life lesson.

This guy has serious mental issues. He's shown he's a psycho on several occasions now.

The UFC should cut Brandao so he can go back to being a drug dealer. Chubby doesn't belong in the UFC.

Pretty serious allegation considering he made it while they were both at work. Employer really can't do nothing about it unless they find it to be untrue, which is doubtful knowing Brandao's nature. I say make him try to take Travis Browne down against the cage until dead or in top position as punishment.

I'd like to see Poirier get a chance to avenge his loss against Cub Swanson. I think The Diamond could beat Cub and that would shoot him up really close to the top of the Division.

Matt Hughes is the guy who is supposed to handle these kinds of situations, right?
What the hell are you going to do though? He talked some serious shit, got his ass completely whipped for it...he is going to get some sort of monetary punishment for being so overweight...does he really need more. Maybe it's just because of my upbringing, but I've been threatened like that a lot...dude doesn't have a knife then its just shit talking and the appropriate punishment has been delivered already.

This is clearly one of those "If it werent for MMA I'd be in prison" situations. I'm sure his big dream of stabbing someone in the neck will come true someday.

Eh, Brandao was a hot-head on TUF too. He just has a bad habit of getting easily upset and saying stupid shit but unless he actually tries something it's all just shit talk.

That's a pretty serious threat and it should be addressed as soon as possible. If the threat can be verified by witnesses the UFC should send him packing immediately. The guy comes in way over weight and out of shape and then threatens to maim or kill his opponent with a weapon? Later bro, au revoir.

Doesn't surprise me at all, Brandao pulled the same nonsense with Bermudez on TUF when Bermudez hadn't even so much as looked at him funny. The guy is a lunatic and the UFC should drop his ass until he gets some therapy.
