Dustin Poirier (26-6 MMA, 18-5 UFC) accepted the fight with Conor McGregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC), but he believes there is more behind. After the great exchange of words between the two on Twitter a few days ago, the American explained what he thinks about the revenge of the contest. He himself thinks that the event between the Irishman and Manny Pacquiao is involved in this issue, so it all makes perfect sense to him.
“Going back to why I think he wants this fight, it’s because he’s looking to fight Pacquiao. That was on the news. So I don’t know if the UFC wants me to fight one more time before they let him fight Pacquiao or if he just wants to get one more this year before starting next year with the Pacquiao fight, but what better way to do it. Against another southpaw? “He began by saying” the diamond “to the press.
The revenge takes more and more strength
For its part, Dustin He also communicated the following in this regard: “I think that could be his way of thinking. He wants to fight another southpaw before fighting another southpaw. I don’t know what’s going on, but I think that’s the lineup. Khabib (Nurmagomedov), the current champion, said yes Conor or Tony fight me and win, he will give him another shot at the title, so that’s on his head too.
“I think he’s creating a perfect storm, and it’s gathering for him to go out in public and say, ‘Hey, I want to fight Dustin Poirier this year.’ I’m not going to go in there and fight in anger. I’m going to go in and fight with skills. In my last few fights, I felt like something different was happening in the lead up to the fight. It was less pressure. In a strange way, I care less, “he also highlighted, focusing on what happened the first time he crossed paths with Conor McGregor.
“I cared too much before. I cared too much and that blinded me and got in the way. I care, but not like before. It’s hard for the average person to understand, but it’s important for me to keep that mindset. I’ll be fine. Whatever happens, I’ll be fine. It will be a great event and I have the confidence I need to beat it. I have no problems », he closed Dustin Poirier. Now, the expectation grows more and more for the rematch with Mcgregor.
