Conor McGregor issues a bold statement ahead of the UFC 257 fight against Dustin Poirier. The fight will take place on January 23, at Fight Island.
UFC 257 is due to arrive in just over two weeks, and in the wake of that, the event’s main event protagonists are busy attaining a psychological edge ahead of the match. While the oddsmakers have tagged Conor McGregor as the favorite, Dustin Poirier in his media interactions has so far cut a confident figure and is motivated to even things out with the Notorious one.
Subsequently, in the apparent tussle to affect the opponent mentally and to showcase how focused he is, Conor McGregor has disseminated a huge statement via social media. The Irishman, who over the years has become a custodian of in-ring spectacles has conveyed he will present an even better performance on January 23.
Conor McGregor Makes a Huge Statement
In an Instagram post, the 32-year-old mentioned two of his significant victories. One from the recent past against Cowboy Cerrone and another against Eddie Alvarez, and conveyed: ” Cerrone McGregor Vs Alvarez McGregor. I’d destroy both these versions of myself. And Together. And I’m not messing. Absolutely demolish them both. 16 days!”

So, with this assertion, it could be presumed that the business end of the build-up has begun. And as the ultimate day is coming close, the excitement is going to break all scales but the question will remain the same, i.e., Will the Diamond shine this time around, or will it be the Mystic Mac who will strike once again.
Conor McGregor Vs. Dustin Poirier: Who Will Have The Upper Hand?
Given, it is a rematch and Conor McGregor stood tall in the last meeting; therefore the odds are in favor of him. However, since that fight, which took place in 2014, Dustin Poitier has built an impressive resume and he is currently the No.2 Lightweight in UFC.
So, as the fighters are in isolation, training to bring out their A-game, at this point only conjectures can be drawn about the ultimate result. Although, the odds and conjectures will not matter on the day as the unsaid rule of the sport states, on the day the fighter who makes better adjustments eventually prevails.
