Six months ago, Conor McGregor shocked everyone by once again announcing his retirement from mixed martial arts. But the decision was short-lived, as he decided to go back to focus again on getting the lightweight belt.

McGregor’s last fight was in January of last year against Donald Cerrone. Although he did it in a different category (welterweight), the Irishman dominated the ‘Cowboy’ and defeated him in just 40 seconds.

For his fight against Poirier, the Irishman has promised his fans the same forcefulness. “I like Dustin. I think he’s a good fighter, even a great fighter. But it is still below me. I’ll knock him out in 60 seconds, “he said.

For his part, Poirier comes off a victory against Dan Hooker that put him back on the road to victory. This after he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018.

Indeed, the presence of Khabib seems to be confirmed for that night. In the words of Dana White, the Russian will see the event from start to finish and if he is dazzled by a fighter, he might think about fighting again. Extra motivation especially for Conor McGregor.

It should be noted that the co-main event for UFC 257 will be between Dan Hooker and Michael Chandler, also at lightweight. ‘The Hangman’ will welcome the former Bellator champion to the Octagon.
