UFC 264 Fight Preview

Poirier showed in the second fight that he has evolved and improved a great deal. While much of the credit was given to Dustin’s leg and calf kicks rendering Conor immobile, Poirier has said that it really was not part of his gameplan and that he’s not a one-trick pony. He attacked the weakness that presented itself and then capitalized with some hard strikes when he had Conor on the cage to score the second-round KO.

Conor calls the second fight a fluke win for Poirier. He said he was more focused on a potential boxing match with Manny Pacquiao and was not truly focused on Dustin. We are seeing a return to form for McGregor who seemed to be kinder and gentler in the leadup and immediately following the second fight.

Things have been intense in the buildup to this fight, with Conor even saying he was going to send Poirier out on a stretcher to end this fight.

While Poirier is the favorite, you can never count out McGregor. He has fight-changing power and throws punches from all sorts of angles when he is in his flow. Poirier’s job will be to not allow “The Notorious One” to get comfortable and make him continually reset his offense with jabs.

Don’t expect as many leg kicks this time around, as Conor will be looking for them. One thing is for sure, both fighters excel on their feet so you can expect some good exchanges.
