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

Naturally, a lot of talks have been circulating regarding the highly anticipated trilogy. Currently, both the fighters are on one win apiece. Unsurprisingly, predictions for the third and final fight of the series have already begun.

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.

Previously, ‘The Notorious’ and ‘The Diamond’ fought at UFC 178, where McGregor knocked out Poirier in the first round. However, McGregor was the one knocked out, when the pair met again at UFC 257.

Although it looked like the pair had established mutual respect, Conor seems to have a different idea. In his latest Instagram post, the fighter predicted a brutal ‘front kick to the nose’ of Poirier to win the bout in Round 4.

Redemption For Conor McGregor?

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.

The race for the lightweight belt is on. Whilst one of Charles Oliveira or Michael Chandler will lay claim to it at UFC 262, the winner will be closely pursued by a list of potent fighters. Conor will have to win this fight in order to establish himself in the race.
