Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are going to compete in a rematch at UFC 257 in Fight Island, Abu Dhabi.
Ahead of their fight the former lightweight champion and McGregor’s rival Khabib Nurmagomedov predicted the outcome of the fight he said, “Early it’s Conor, but third-round number four, I think Dustin can beat this guy,” Khabib has fought both of them and dominated both of them.
Although Conor gave Khabib a tougher competition he still believes Dustin has what it takes to beat Conor in the later rounds. Most people believed that Conor’s cardio is not that good and in the fight against Nate Diaz he gassed out in later rounds.
Conor disregarded this claim and said that his cardio problem is a myth and although he is looking to knock Dustin out in 60 seconds but he is excited to show the world what he can do in later rounds.
Daniel Cormier believes Conor gave Khabib the toughest competition
Daniel Cormier in an interview at Fight Island said although Conor lost the fight against Khabib he gave him the toughest competition he was able to stop the takedowns and he was able to get up to his feet.
Fans are rooting for a rematch and Conor also said although Khabib isn’t interested in fighting anyone “he will get him.” If this fight were to happen then its going to be the biggest fight in the history of MMA.
