Seemingly he was running before taking the photos. Recently he has been posting photos while he is running or cycling. Running or cycling has become his regular part of his workout as he wants to build stamina.
McGregor returned to the octagon after a year, and it appeared he was having a problem with stamina. Therefore, he could not last more than two rounds with Poirier. The Diamond stunned McGregor with a second-round TKO. Tough the Notorious had an excellent start in the first round but failed to continue the charm in the second round.
Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier: Who will get an advantage?
McGregor knocked out Poirier in the opening round of their first meeting at UFC 178 in September 2014. However, ‘The Diamond’ gained revenge in January this year via second-round punches.
Considering the most recent battle, Poirier is already ahead in terms of confidence level. But, according to the winning records, McGregor will enter with a one-inch reach edge. However, the two are near dead in striking numbers, takedown, submissions, and playing minutes.
The Irishman is much more experienced than ‘The Diamond.’ But Poirier’s more well-rounded skill set will certainly get him the edge. Moreover, he already knows how to defeat the Notorious, and Dustin Poirier will get the advantage for sure.
