Conor McGregor Reveals The Name of His ‘Easiest Opponent’ Throughout The UFC Career

Conor McGregor of Ireland poses on the scale during the UFC 257 weigh-in at Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island on January 22, 2021

Conor McGregor is working hard to publicize his rematch with Dustin Poirier. The fight will take place on the 10th of July at UFC 264. Conor has taken to social media on numerous occasions to showcase his progress.

Earlier today, in a Twitter QnA, McGregor gave his response to the fans’ questions for the fighter. Interestingly, Conor also responded to a question about who his easiest fight was.

Shockingly, Conor reveals that his easiest opponent ever was Dustin Poirier, specifically, the UFC 178 version of ‘The Diamond’.  Notably, Conor also has KO/TKO victories against Donald Cerrone and Jose Aldo within forty and thirteen seconds of the first round, respectively.

Whilst Conor enjoyed a very comfortable victory over Poirier at UFC 178, it was by no means the easiest. As such, it simply appears to be another dig at Poirier, before their upcoming fight. Fans of ‘The Notorious’ will be aware of the fighter’s tactics to generate interest in his fights.

The trilogy is one of the most lucrative in the entirety of the UFC. The fight will serve as a five-round main event at 155 pounds, just like the rematch. The original fight, however, took place at 145 pounds.

Can Conor McGregor Win at UFC 264?

Conor McGregor will be looking to redeem himself following his defeat in the last fight. In the rematch at UFC 257, the former champ started brightly but ended up succumbing to a barrage of punches from Poirier in Round 2.

Hence, Conor has been training relentlessly ever since. He believed that the third fight was an eventuality and started preparing for it immediately. With vengeance on his mind and a spring in his step, McGregor looks like a whole new fighter.

Following the loss at UFC 257, Conor will be even more motivated to do his best. Importantly, he will be aware that his legacy, reputation, and a potential title shot against the winner of Chandler vs. Oliveira will be on the line.

Following that, McGregor has teased a potential return to the sport of boxing in the future including a possible fight against Manny Pacquiao. His last boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather in 2017 drew 4.3 million PPV buys in North America.
