McGregor vs Poirer part III: when is it?

On Saturday 10 July, the two fighters meet again for what will be their trilogy battle. Earlier this year the 32-year old from Louisiana got his revenge, with a rapid attack in the second round at UFC 257, after The Notorious had beaten him back in 2014 inside two minutes. The latest octagon, as part of UFC 264 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is ready.

Speaking to Tristar Gym’s YouTube channel ahead of the fight, Canadian-born fighter Georges St.Pierre said that he expects the popular Irishman to prevail.

“I think McGregor is very good in rematches - and I think he’s going to have the victory. I think he’s probably going to win in the second round by knockout.”

St.Pierre’s coach, Firas Zahabi, was struggling to pick a winner, but has a reason for going for Poirier.

“I think this is an incredibly difficult fight. Fifty-fifty, but if Georges picked McGregor, I’ve got to pick Poirier, and I think Poirier’s going to take him in round three, and he’s going to do the same thing he did before.

“He’s going to kick the leg, he’s going to injure McGregor a little bit on the leg, and then he’s going to put the hands on him. It’s going to be a trench war - and Poirier’s gonna put him away.”
