UFC 264 Preview
McGregor and Poirier first squared off in September 2014; the former secured a first-round TKO in just his fourth UFC scrap.
Poirier evened the score in January 2021, punching out the Irishman in the second round of the UFC 257 main event. Neither combatant has fought since.
McGregor’s now dropped two of three bouts since he simultaneously held the lightweight and featherweight straps.
“I beat him in the original bout. I lost in the rematch,” the 32-year-old McGregor recently told Fox Sports, according to Sportskeeda. “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.”
In the rematch, Poirier wore down his opponent with calf kicks before ending things with blows to the face. The 32-year-old Louisiana native recently said he expects McGregor to try and returned the favor in their third meeting.
“He felt how crippling those kicks and how painful those kicks are and how much it changes the dynamic of a fight that I think he’s going to try and use them against me now,” Poirier told The Fight with Teddy Atlas, according to MMA Fighting. “I really do, and that’s what I started doing, I started trying to use them every chance I got after I was hurt with them.”
He added: “I’m working on still landing my offense with my low kicks, but now I’m working on defending a lot more than I used to,” Poirier said. “Just like in that fight, if he would have started checking those kicks, or if I would have been getting taken down because I was chasing that leg kick, then I would have called an audible and gone with something else. I just used them because they were there, it was damaging him, he wasn’t making the right decisions to start defending them, and I knew how much they hurt, and I knew it was going to change the fight.”
