Poirier: I’m going to whup McGregor's ass


After some quick back and forth on Twitter, a matchup between Dustin Poirier and Connor McGregor was made for UFC 178. Poirier isn't exactly the biggest McGregor fan and at UFC 178 is looking for to putting a stop to his mouth, and his hype:

“He just runs his mouth a little bit too much,” Poirier added. “He just kind of brings that kind of hatred towards himself. But, at the same time, people want to see him fight. So he’s doing a job of promoting the sport and the featherweight division. But he just got dealt a bad hand this time.”

Confident he’ll be the one to take the wind out of McGregor’s sails, Poirier explained why his will be hand raised at UFC 178.

“I’m the man – period. I’m the best in the division. I’m going to be the champion.”

“He’s just poking at something that doesn’t matter. When it’s all said and done – September 27 – me and Conor McGregor are going to step in. His fans can’t come with him. His coaches and friends can’t come with him. It’s going to be me and him and I’m going to whup his ass.”

Two different matchups. Besides the Conor fight was competitive until the takedown, then after that it was all Conor.

If you're going to mention that, lets point out that Dustin finished Max Halloway in the first, as where Conner had to out point him to a decision.

Connor is going to finish him. I am sure there will be some heavy exchanges, It may go a few rounds if Dustin comes in with a wrestle and grapple first mentality, At the same time I think pre fight banter will provide the motivation for Dustin to come out swinging and get put away. Length, boxing and footwork, The hype train rolls on, And becomes real after this one.

DDP needs to take advantage of McGregor's energy, and determination to finish a fight, and feint on a punch to lure the highlander to the mat, and hope mcGregor doesn't have any super secret submission defense.

And that proves nothing except how they match up against Brandao, not each other.

Dustin in over his head here. This is one of those situations where the higher ranked fighter seems like the safe pick but as an mma fighter he's just....tough-that's it. Mcgregor is way more skilled where poirier is strongest.

I hope he doesn't cool down anything. Weigh ins between Dustin and Conor are going to be ridonculous.

Let's just try to cool down the "tough guy at the weigh ins" schtick, okay Dustin? Comes off like a cunt when he pulls that shit, IMO.
