The long-standing rivalry between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier remains one of the most highly discussed topics in the MMA world. The Notorious One isn’t one to back down from a fight and also to spare any expenses when it comes to talking trash to his opponents.
Notorious is always open to trash talking his opponents but it seems in the past couple of years, he has not been able to back up what he’s been saying, as evident from his loss against Dustin Poirier earlier in the year.
While speaking to Fox Sports, the former dual-champion claimed he is in great condition already and that he is ‘very, very confident’ about defeating Dustin Poirier in the fight.
“All the marbles are on the line. I’m here training very, very hard. I’m about to go for my second session of the day. I’m in great condition already.
I beat him in the original bout. I lost in the rematch. And then we’ve got trilogy, I’ve got a few little adjustments to make. I feel very, very confident. I’m very focused and driven. And I’ll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10th.”
McGregor is certainly focused on his upcoming fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 11th in their third fight together. Both of them currently have a win over the other, so we will have to see who will become the definite winner in the high profile rivalry.
