Conor McGregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) will meet for the second time against Dustin Poirier (26-6 MMA, 18-5 UFC), at UFC 257. The Irishman won by TKO in the first round six years ago. Now, with a very heavy preparation that both have had, this January 23 they will face each other. Thus, the expectation is enormous and the former champion’s own coach, John kavanagh, gave a strong point of view on what’s to come.
Thus, the coach of Mcgregor He started by saying, “I think you can spend your whole life going to sports psychologists and talking to this person and that person; that is not going to be erased from your mind. He knows he is up against someone who can turn off his lights very, very quickly and is now much more powerful and much more experienced than he was then, making it a difficult and uphill battle for Dustin«.
“I think Poirier it has definitely improved. There are a few more takedown attempts now in his fights. I have not seen it before, it has a good guillotine. We can see that. Then your volume and your conditioning look spot on. You can see in his fights that he has the ability to take a lot of punishments and still show up. Pick any of the latest fights to see that quality. However, he is fighting an animal unlike any of those guys: someone with true one-punch knockout power that he has already felt, ”he added to his words.
It will happen?
For its part, John He noted: “It was a bad night for Dustin. He was very one-sided, and when you look at some of the shots he’s absorbed, he’s now a bigger man now, and you can tell maybe there’s some argument that he can absorb more shots now, but he’s fighting a bigger man, like good. Even if you remember the fight, the opening hook kick, it just whistled past his head. A couple of inches lower, that might even have topped Aldo’s fight.
“So look, they both have physically matured. As for age, you know, now they are 30 and have families. Dustin has had a couple more contests than Conor since in the Octagon. Conor He has never stopped training and has obviously had a boxing match and done other things, so it is interesting to see how the styles are combined this time, “he completed John kavanagh, who relies on the power of the Irishman for this rematch.
