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.
McGregor previously mocked Dustin Poirier for grappling too much in his fights as well. Poirier would fire back by stating that Conor McGregor’s comments reek of insecurity.
Naturally, both fans and celebrities alike have their own pick as to who will win the UFC 264 fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. UFC recently took to Twitter and uploaded a video of legendary rapper Ice Cube, as he gave his pick for the winner of the fight.
Ice Cube picked Conor McGregor to win the trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier, predicting that he will knock out Dustin Poirier in the third round for the win.
“This is your homeboy, Ice Cube. You know who I got on the fight. ‘The Notorious’, man. Come on. Conor (is) gonna knock him [Dustin Poirier] out, maybe in the third round. Conor in three. Knock out. Yeah. So, that’s my prediction. And look, before you check that out, check out the ‘Big 3’, man. 1 o’clock, CBS. Yeah. Check us out, 1 o’clock eastern, baby. CBS. Then, get in your pay-per-view, check out the UFC, baby.”
With the fight scheduled to face place on July 11th, it certainly is do or die time for Conor McGregor as he simply cannot afford to lose the fight no matter what.
