Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor face off at UFC 264 press conference
The UFC 264 press conference will mark the first time that the two fighters have been in the presence of each other since their memorable meeting back in January of this year, at UFC 257.
Poirier pulled off the massive upset over McGregor in that last meeting with a second-round T/KO victory. The win for Poirier redeemed him from his loss to the Irishman at UFC 178 back in 2014, a fight that saw McGregor pulled off the victory as a strong betting favorite in just over a minute.
The highly anticipated third meeting between these two fighters at UFC 264 should be one for the ages. McGregor is 1-2 in his last three Octagon appearances, with his only win coming against UFC veteran Donald Cerrone in January of last year.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion will look to avoid the first losing streak in his professional MMA career but could also catapult himself directly to the top of the lightweight division with a win over the No. 1 ranked Poirer.
McGregor and Poirier had a heated build-up to their fight at UFC 178 in 2014. However, their rematch saw a much more composed McGregor, who portrayed himself in interviews as more mature and less abrasive than fans and media had come to know.
It may not be the same well-mannered McGregor that we saw in the build-up to UFC 257, as Poirier and McGregor have exchanged jabs back and forth on social media. There’s no telling exactly what will happen or be said in a McGregor press conference, but one there’s for sure, it will be appointment viewing on Thursday afternoon.
