‘The Diamond’ Dustin Poirier is going to face ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor for the third time at the main event of UFC 264 at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada. Poirier will be stepping into this fight with a KO win against McGregor in their last fight at UFC 257 and he is walking into this one with full preparation as well.

The friend and teammate of Poirier, Jorge Masvidal gave an update about Dustin Poirier’s training camp in the UFC 264 betting preview show. Masvidal says, “He’s in phenomenal shape, man, I’ve been there since the start of the camp. He came in shape.”

“He wasn’t messing around. He knew that third fight was going to happen at some point. It’s not like he went home and gave himself any slack. He came back full six-packed out, doing five rounds.”

Masvidal added, “Usually I see him progress and he gets better every week. He came in on fight shape on Week 1 and he’s looking phenomenal. He’s going to hurt somebody.” {h/t MMA junkie}

Although, Jorge Masvidal is leaning towards his training partner Dustin Poirier to win this trilogy fight but he also clarifies that it is going to be foolish for Poirier to stand and bang against Conor McGregor.

Gamebred says, “I think Conor gets his timing better than anybody, faster than anybody, if he can’t get his timing right away (Poirier) has to move, chop his legs, grapple and wrestle with him. Take Conor away from that, because he’s one of the best sprinters.”

“Conor coming off the blocks – this guy is a 100-yard sprinter. He’s in your face right away landing big shots. I think Dustin is going to be more than ready for it.”

Jorge Masvidal continued, “He faced him twice. He’s got a lot of strategies going into it. I think standup anyways, because he’s dealt with it on two occasions, he knows how quickly he can find his timing.” {h/t MMA junkie}

“I don’t think he’s going to catch him by surprise, even on the feet. But I think that’s one of Conor’s biggest strengths.”
