The long-standing rivalry between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier remains one of the most highly discussed topics in the MMA world. McGregor is undoubtedly one of the best fighters in the MMA world and he is certainly confident in his skills.
McGregor took to Twitter and made a very bold claim, as he is preparing for the third fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. McGregor claimed that fighting is easy to him.
Fighting is easy to me.
