Justin Bieber Tips Conor McGregor To Beat Dustin Poirier In VMAs Acceptance Speech
Justin Bieber reckons Conor McGregor will avenge his recent loss to Dustin Poirier.
Former UFC champion McGregor suffered a devastating leg break in his trilogy with Dustin Poirier in July, bringing their bout to a premature end.
For many, they think it could spell an end to their heated rivalry too, with Poirier claiming two wins compared to McGregor's one victory from way back in 2014.
But in the eyes of others, this feud is far from over and some even think a fourth bout could be on the cards - Bieber being one of them.
It's no secret that the music megastar is a Conor McGregor super-fan, so when the duo appeared at the recent VMAs together Bieber couldn't help himself but give a shout-out to the Irishman.
"I know you guys have probably heard it a lot, but we are in unprecedented times right now, with this, um, Covid thing that's happening," Bieber said during his acceptance speech.
"We're all here together, you know? And we got a lot more in common than we don't.
"And I look around here and I see so many beautiful faces, and I really do believe the best is yet to come."
Bieber then turned to special guest host McGregor, adding: "We're gonna get 'em next time.
"New York is back and so is the Mac. 2022 will be our greatest year yet.
"Conor, we're gonna get 'em next time, my boy. Let's go."
Granted, he doesn't directly mention Poirier's names, but if you wanted to hazard a guess at who he was referring to you'd probably land on the American.
McGregor has been desperate to get his hands on 'The Diamond' once more, even going back-and-forth with him during the octagon demanding an immediate rematch after he recovers fully from his leg snap.
But at the moment, Poirier has bigger fish to fry.
The former interim champ looks set to take on current lightweight king Charles Oliviera for a shot at the 155-pound title.
That bout between arguably two of the most entertaining fighters on the UFC roster is reportedly in the works, being targetted for UFC 269 in December.
