Do you remember the press conference at UFC 257? Well, if you don’t, here’s a video to help jog your memory. It was just like yesterday; Conor Mcgregor went on to praise Poirier, and they both made a joke about having a distribution deal between the both of them.
Fast forward to UFC 264, and the narrative changed quite a bit. After suffering an embarrassing loss in their rematch, McGregor came out with no intention of supporting Dustin Poirier’s hot sauce endeavor by throwing the bottles of hot sauce he gifted to Mcgregor into the crowd.
As an MMA Analyst and Food Enthusiast, when I heard about this, I was genuinely excited. Little did I know that Dustin has been concocting some high-quality hot sauces in his spare time.
This all started with Dustin’s Lafayette roots. As a Louisiana native, He knew that hot sauce was more than just a condiment, It was a way of life for people from the south.
With that being said, Poirier had to come out strong to impress the people of Louisiana. In December of 2020, Dustin Poirier announced the debut of his Cajun Style Hot Sauce. Poirier partnered with a Canadian Hot Sauce company named Heartbeat Hot Sauce to release “Poirier’s | Louisiana Style Hot Sauce” which is available now on Heatonist! So far, the hot sauce has gotten great reviews.
Like any good cajun sauce, the recipe starts with the best cayenne peppers, fermented to round out the sting and up the flavor before finishing with vinegar, sea salt, celery and garlic. Add in a handful of red habaneros for an extra punch of heat, and you have a knock out sauce that can take on everything from heavyweight meals like biscuits and gravy to featherweight dishes like grilled chicken breast or cauliflower pizza.Heatonist.com
Now, approximately 1 week from today, Dustin Poirier is going to release the KO Edition of the Original Hot Sauce he released earlier this year. This edition will feature a much spicier hot sauce. They’ve added in ghost pepper for a nice kick and a few more ingredients to help round out the flavor. Here’s how it was described by Heatonist
the original Cajun flavor with ghost pepper heat for a knockout kick. Aged cayenne and mouth-puckering white vinegar give this sauce its iconic Louisiana hot sauce taste, while celery, sea salt and garlic add more interesting flavors.
