The former UFC Lightweight interim champion Dustin Poirier is ready to face the former two-division UFC star, Conor McGregor. For Poirier, this fight is more about making a statement in the division than taking revenge from Conor from their first face-off.
Poirier wants redemption in this fight and more than that he wants that in a violent way. In his latest interview with Mail, ‘The Diamond’ says, “I didn’t even get to fight you know, the fight didn’t even get to blossom,”
“But that’s fighting anything can happen under those lights…What I want is for us to both be dripping blood and hurting and suffering early in the fight. Then we can find out who’s a real fighter. You know, that’s what I want.”
“I want to be bleeding. Within a minute of the first round clock. I want us both to be bleeding and really have to dig down and see who’s the better fighter, see who really wants to be in there.”
“You know, because I don’t have a safety net…I want to be in there. I know that, and I’d like to find out if he does,”
